ALEKS scores cannot be interpreted in the same way as exam grades. Scores of 46 or higher reflect adequate preparation for college-level math.
You should select one of the courses below only if the course is appropriate for your degree program. If your degree does not require one of the courses listed below, you can meet your General Education requirement with other courses. Your academic adviser will help you select appropriate courses when you are building your schedule. For first-year students, this conversation will occur at New Student Orientation.
|Cut Score||Range||Courses Placement|
|Scores ≤ 45%||(1-45)||allows a student to register for Math 0001 (out of state students) or Math 0045 (in state students)|
|Scores ≥ 46%||(46-52)||allows a student to register for Math 1065, 1066 or 2127
|Scores ≥ 53%||(53-60)||allows a student to register for Math 2228 or 2283|
|Scores ≥ 61%||(61-75)||allows a student to register for Math 1083, 2119, 2121|
|Scores ≥ 76%||(76-100)||allows a student to register for Math 2171 or 2151|
You will not be permitted to take a math course that is above your readiness level (even if you are only one point away). If you want to place into a higher-level course, you may use ALEKS learning modules to improve your skills and retake the assessment.
