The Absolute Best Book to Ace the ALEKS Math Test
All students start ALEKS with an Initial knowledge Check. An ALEKS Knowledge Check asks you nearly 20-30 questions to define their exact knowledge condition in your ALEKS course. A Knowledge Check will determine, for each topic in the course, which topic each student is ready to learn, which topic each student does not know, and which topics each student knows.
During a knowledge Check, students are not told whether the answers are correct or incorrect. If students are faced with a question that they do not know how to solve, they can select the “I do not know” option. If students have an idea of how to solve a question, they should do their best to solve it and give their best answer.
Students may log out while Knowledge Check is in progress, in which case they will continue where they left off when logged in. When students complete a Knowledge Check, the number of topics they have Mastered, Learned, and Remaining is updated to reflect their knowledge status.
