ALEKS is a mastery-based learning platform that identifies what your students know, what they don't know and what they are ready to learn. No matter your course structure or format, ALEKS empowers instructors with the flexibility and control to create an environment that helps students achieve their unique goals. Like having a second teacher in the classroom, ALEKS helps instructors facilitate even more meaningful interaction with students, resulting in more motivated, confident, lifelong learners.
I love how it is personal so it helps you right where you are. Also, the explanation of a wrong problem helps you learn faster to know what you did wrong right away. I recommend using ALEKS again.Student, Southwestern Michigan, Summer Bridge program 2017

As you head back for the Fall semester here are some tried and true tips and tricks to kick-off your classes.
Making it Stick! Mixing old with new holds like glue
Are you running or considering implementing a co-requisite course?
i. Will review be woven into the support course as just-in-time or will it all be done up front?
ii. How will sections be determined? Will students enrolled in the Corequisite support be mixed with college level students in the credit course?
iii. What is the overall structure of the course? Things to consider are supplemental labs, increased meeting times for the gateway course, “compressed” support of a Coreq, and boot camps.
iv. Will the Coreq support course and the credit course be taught by the same or different instructor?
v. If you offer online courses, will you require students to take the support/credit course in same modality?
vi. How are students placed into the Coreq course?
vii. On what will the grade in the Coreq course be based? Will it impact the grade in the credit course? Will you assign two separate grades?
viii. What content will be taught in the Corequisite course? What activities will the students engage in during the course?
ix. Will features/requirements will you have for the software used in the Coreq course? Will they be the same features/requirements for software in the credit course?
x. Will you embed study skills in the Coreq course?
