ALEKS Self-Assessments

Success in college starts with choosing the correct courses. The ALEKS (Assessment & Learning in Knowledge Spaces) Assessment Test is recommended for all incoming freshmen who are planning to take Calculus 1, General Chemistry, or Intro to Cell & Molecular Biology during their first year at Tulane.

The ALEKS is an individualized, adaptive learning tool that can help determine your best course placement. It assesses what you do or don't already know and what you are most ready to learn to create a personalized learning plan that efficiently prepares you for your class coursework. The ALEKS assessment will also give you the opportunity to take an additional Prep and Learning Course to review subject areas that you tested lower in prior to school starting. ALEKS is available to Tulane students for $25 per course for 6 weeks of access to the Knowledge Check and Learning Modules.
