AMCS will not be holding a proctored ALEKS test until further notice, but ask that you complete the required exam at home. This test can be taken up to 5 times, but you will be required to complete a learning module between each re-take.
- NO OUTSIDE HELP as you take the ALEKS! All you need is pencil/pen & scratch paper...the test will provide a calculator if/when necessary. No clicking outside of ALEKS while testing to Google questions. No books. Just use what you know, because you want to be placed in a Math course that you can complete successfully.
- Discrepancies will be addressed.
You'll be taken to a portal sign-in page - click under the UAA logo.
Login using your UAA user name and password. If you're having issues with the login process, please call I/T @ 786-4646 for assistance.
Once you're logged in, you'll see "My Classes" with one active block. Click on the block to proceed. ALEKS will ask you to fill out a brief survey. Two survey questions where students have consistently requested clarification:
You need a score of 30 or higher to place in a college-level math class. Remember, the learning modules are there for your benefit and will reinforce the concepts specific to areas where ALEKS determines you could use some extra support.
- When asked about your last completed math class, enter the last math class you fully completed (or the closest match you can find in the drop down box) - not the one you're currently enrolled in
- When asked which math class you'd like to test into, click the MATH105 option
Please email AMCS with your score.
