Title:ALEKS
Seminar:Teaching Seminar
Speaker:N/A
Abstract:
We have recommended that students deficient in Algebra/Trig sign up for an ALEKS course concurrently with their PSU course. What is ALEKS? Why are we recommending it? ALEKS is a web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics he or she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking. Feel free to review more on ALEKS at http://www.aleks.com/about_aleks. Food will be provided by McGraw-Hill.
