Where can I see my score?

  • You will receive your score immediately upon completion of your Placement Assessment.

  • Your ALEKS score can be viewed by re-entering ALEKS using the same access link for
    which you took the Placement Assessment.

  • Your scores will be added to your student profile and will be accessible by your advisor.

How long is my placement result valid?

Your placement result is valid for up to 12 months.

What if I do not place into the course I wanted?

This is a perfect opportunity to take advantage of the Prep and Learning Modules offered
within ALEKS PPL. An individualized study plan will be created based on your performance
on the Initial Placement Assessment. ALEKS will identify what you know and what you
are ready to learn next so you can brush up on lost knowledge.

I did not place into the class I wanted. Can I take it anyway?

No, you must achieve the minimum placement result to take each corresponding class.

What if I placed into the class I wanted?

Congratulations! Continue to use your Prep and Learning Module to improve your chances
for success. The placement result required is the minimum preparation for your course.
Take advantage of the individualized review and learning features in ALEKS to get
a better grade in your class.

Can I retake the ALEKS PPL Assessment?

Yes, you may take up to 4 Placement Assessments. However, to make each attempt worthwhile,
it is important that you spend time working in your ALEKS Prep and Learning Module
between Placement Assessments so that you can improve your skills.

Can I retake the ALEKS Placement Assessment immediately?

You must wait at least 48 hours between Placement Assessments and work in the Prep
Modules must be completed first. There is generally no benefit to re-taking the Placement
Assessment immediately after completing a prior attempt. You cannot improve your results
by simply re-taking the Placement Assessment without spending time in the Prep and
Learning Module to refresh material that you may have forgotten.
