Improving math pass rates has never been easier. We’ll support you at every step for a successful implementation.

Columbus State CC’s redesign initiatives help close equity gaps

African American students close a 12 point achievement gap in their corequisite College Algebra course and are now performing at the same level as their white peers. Regardless of background, ALEKS works to help all students, hold them accountable, and save time and money as they accelerate their path. Learn how Columbus State implemented ALEKS to close gaps in their:
• Lab-based, Developmental Math emporium model
• College Algebra corequisite course
• Placement bootcamp in week 1 of their course

ALEKS helped an additional 670 students pass at ASU.

In Fall 2016, Arizona State University saw an increase of 670 more students pass College Algebra compared to Fall 2015. In just one semester, students saved over $1,000,000 in tuition and course fees! Watch the video to see their story.
