Aleks...TOS Crew Review

Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system that uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS offers truly individualized instruction that meets the student at her learning level and instructs her on the exact topics that she is most ready to learn. As a result, no two students will experience the same learning path while working in ALEKS.

ALEKS can provide you with the instruction and support that you need to homeschool your children in mathematics for grades 3-12. With a comprehensive course library ranging from elementary school math to complex subjects such as PreCalculus, ALEKS acts much like a human tutor to help take the stress off of homeschooling parents.

ALEKS offers highly-targeted, individualized instruction from virtually any computer with Internet access, making it a comprehensive and mobile education solution for your children. A subscription to ALEKS offers access to all courses and your child may take as many courses as needed during their subscription period.

ALEKS is offered through a monthly subscription.  ALEKS generously offers a discount for multiple months... 1 month subscription costs $19.95... 6 month subscription costs $99.95... and a 12 month subscription costs $179.95.  ALEKS also offers a family discount for the 6 month and 12 month subscription plan.  

I was offered a one-month free trial of ALEKS for each of my kids to review.  Honestly, I'm not crazy about it but then again, I'm not crazy about internet courses.  We have limited internet data each month and so it's hard for us to use internet courses in our daily school work.  I also prefer real books and hands-on learning as opposed to computer learning.

I would recommend ALEKS to the home school that is able to enjoy internet courses and in fact, ALEKS is offering the same one month trial subscription that I received to anyone who would like to try their internet course.  Click here for more information to try it for yourself!

***disclaimer... I was sent this trial subscription for my honest review.  I received no other compensation.
