Our students at GMS have access to a free, online personal tutoring system called ALEKS. Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces 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 he or she is taking.  ALEKS also provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction, 24/7, from virtually any Web-based computer.

 

We have started to work in this program during out Intervention time. I would like to encourage students to work here as often as possible. Dedicating just 10-15 minutes a night would be wonderful. I do not often assign homework, so this would be a great way to practice skills that have been personally identified as needing work towards mastery.
