Placement Test Tutorial

Students can get several free hours of introduction to the ALEKS program and practice using it. For information on how to do so, see Preparing for the Placement Test. Any student who wishes to have a more extensive preparation for the math placement test can do so by purchasing an online tutorial from the BW bookstore.
  • This tutorial is appropriate for students who feel they are ready for a college-level math course, but need a short refresher to prepare for the placement test.
  • It is also appropriate (and encouraged) for students who took the placement test and scored above 50% (but below 75%) and wish to eventually retake it (for a $20 fee).
  • The tutorial contains an instruction booklet for the ALEKS website, a course code for the tutorial, and a registration code that allows you unlimited access to ALEKS for up to 6 weeks.
  • After registering with the ALEKS tutorial, you will be given an "initial assessment" (similar to the placement test) to determine your strengths and weaknesses.
  • You will then be guided through an interactive tutorial based on your needs. The tutorial provides practice problems, explanations, and assessments.
  • When you feel you are ready to take the placement test, follow the instructions for the Math Placement Test
  • Contact the Placement Administrator if you have any questions or if you wish to retake the test.
