ALEKS Math Learning Modules
After taking the initial Math Placement Test, you have the opportunity to use a Learning Module within ALEKS to refresh your knowledge of the mathematical topics unique to your results. ALEKS tells you which mathematical topics you know, and which ones you're ready to learn. Students who have transfer credit in mathematics are also eligible to use ALEKS to check their knowledge and review or learn concepts through the modules. Both the initial test and up to 6 months of access to the learning modules are free for OSU students.
Talk with your advisor to determine if ALEKS learning modules may be helpful as you plan for coursework in mathematics, economics, chemistry, statistics or other subjects with a mathematical foundation.
