ALEKS is the student’s online textbook and tutorial. We chose this model because the ALEKS program is adaptive.
Using this program, students create their own paths through the course content and tackle problems when they are truly ready to master them. Students do not have to work on problems they already know how to do. The regular class meetings and homework goals that are set each day allow us to monitor student progress and hold them accountable for meeting intermediate goals. These intermediate goals are set to help students be successful on their proctored exams (knowledge checks) during the semester.
