Viewing ALEKS Scores
Minimum ALEKS scores were derived from analysis of the specific skills needed to meet the objectives outlined in course descriptions and syllabi. These scores suggest basic readiness for successful completion of a course.
Since mathematical skills are cumulative, a student cannot master higher-order skills without first demonstrating mastery of more basic skills.
Upon completing an assessment, students see their placement result, a pie chart showing the extent to which skills were mastered, a link to learning modules, and a link to Penn State’s ALEKS information.
Students can access this screen by using the ALEKS Assessment application in eLion.
Students can also see their score via their LionPATH student record.
Academic advisers can see an individual student’s score via LionPATH. This view shows all scores and the date each score was downloaded into the student information system. The highest score is used for placement and for pre-requisite checks.
College and campus advising coordinators can also access student information from www.aleks.com via a login provided to them by an ALEKS Administrator. This view provides additional information about a student’s time in learning modules and knowledge mastery by skill area.
