Understand Your Score

ALEKS scores cannot be interpreted in the same way as exam grades. Scores of 46 or higher reflect adequate preparation for college-level math. Students scoring below that mark will be required to take the developmental math course Math A092 Fundamentals of Algebra. Credit earned in this course is not applicable toward a degree, but the grade earned in this course is calculated into the grade point average.


Course Placement Scores

You will not be permitted to take a math course that is above your readiness level. If you want to place into a higher-level course, you are encouraged to use the ALEKS learning modules to improve your skills and retake the assessment.
