Supporting the Texas Success Initiative
The State of Texas aims to significantly improve the success of underprepared students in higher education, and math success is at the heart of the issue. David Levin, CEO of McGraw-Hill Education, explains on Fox Business’s “Morning Bell with Maria Bartiromo” the importance of math in achieving a college degree, and how it can even affect student loan debt.
Many schools in Texas are turning to ALEKS to help these underprepared students, which can be adapted for numerous course formats that meet the requirements of the Texas Success Initiative. Below are just a few examples of how ALEKS has created opportunities for these students. Learn More about Course Redesign with ALEKS
The flexibility of ALEKS helps to progress students quickly through the developmental math sequence. ALEKS is the only program that will continuously check for retention as students progress through the modules. Austin Community College opened the largest math emporium in the world using ALEKS, only to see significant boosts in student enrollment and success. And, the University of Texas at El Paso received a Star Award for its use of ALEKS.
ALEKS is the only program that can precisely identify each student’s strengths and weaknesses through an adaptive assessment. Each student receives a personalized “just in time” learning plan that provides the most efficient path to completion. The Alamo Community College District uses ALEKS for their NCBO program and Basic Math, so students can accelerate through developmental math after taking the TSI Assessment.
We all know students have unique gaps in their knowledge. ALEKS is the only program that can identify these weaknesses through an adaptive, individualized assessment. This is why ALEKS is perfect for co-requisite courses. ALEKS Texas DMAT0093-MATH 1314 can be used as a co-requisite Intermediate Algebra and College Algebra course to effectively remediate students. It contains all of the required Intermediate Algebra and College Algebra topics defined by the state of Texas.
For colleges seeking a contextual pathway for non-STEM students, ALEKS plus Sobecki/Mercer Pathways to Math Literacy program is the ideal solution. Pathways to Math Literacy and ALEKS create the perfect combination of an interactive, conceptual classroom experience with adaptive skills practice and assessment outside of class. Learn More
