Univ of Toledo

Gen Chem DFW rate drops almost 10% using ALEKS for placement and course.

In using ALEKS for General Chemistry, instructors were able to determine a correlation between mastery in ALEKS and exam scores. With success in the course and on the ACS final exam, instructors chose to use ALEKS for placement into Gen Chem or Elem Chemistry.

Emory Univ

In class, instructors can now go deeper and cover more interesting topics spending less time on foundational topics.
With using ALEKS, instructors can place more emphasis on problem-solving methodology, critical thinking, real-world applications, and more levels 3 and 4 in Bloom’s Taxonomy.

ALEKS Chemistry instructors share how homework grades correlate to exam grades supporting improved retention and exam scores compared to other systems.

Research and Efficacy

Online Prep Class

A team at UC-Davis studied the effectiveness of an online ALEKS Prep class: "On nearly every component of motivation and STEM identity, students in the online summer preparatory course (SP-Chem) responded with higher values of motivation and STEM identity than students who took the traditional WLD-41C course."

ALEKS Supports Preparation and Improves Retention

ALEKS boosts student confidence through personalized practice and periodic knowledge checks. This dynamic cycle of learning and assessment ensures that students remember topics that they have learned, are better prepared for exams, and ready for more as they continue into their next course.
