Take the Un-proctored Assessment and Study

Preparation

This guide explains the basics of ALEKS PPL assessments.  Remember, this is not a test like the SAT and ACT which are aptitude exams.  ALEKS PPL assessments help place you into the course that best fits you.  It is an adaptive assessment and learning program that provides individualized learning in an open-response environment. 

When to Assess

First year freshmen should take the ALEKS PPL Assessment prior to to their Summer Orientation date.  Your ALEKS PPL access is available for up to six months, so if you are not happy with your placement, you may continue to work in the Preparation and Learning Module and re-assess for a total of five times (one un-proctored and four proctored) to try to improve your placement. 

Only the first subscription is free. Subsequent subscriptions will incur a fee (currently $20).  

The prescribed math course must be started in your first semester or future registration may be delayed.
