McGraw-Hill Makes ALEKS Available Direct to Students

McGraw-Hill has launched a direct-to-student version of its ALEKS adaptive learning program. ALEKS MathReady is a self-paced, online math program designed to help students prepare for their math placement test, get extra help or refresh their skills before returning to college.

The program uses adaptive learning technology to identify what topics students don't know and help them practice and master those concepts before moving on. Periodic "knowledge checks" help students remember what they've learned. And visual reports track students' progress as they move along their individual learning path.

"By remediating during the summer or between terms, students and their parents can ensure their tuition investment has a strong return, avoid wasting money taking courses they don't need and complete their coursework with confidence," commented Kathleen McMahon, VP of portfolio management for science, engineering & mathematics at McGraw-Hill, in a statement. "With ALEKS MathReady, students will be better prepared to pass their college classes and stay on track to meet their career goals."

The cost for students is $9.95 for the first month, $24.95 for three months and $19.95 for each additional month after that. For more information, visit the McGraw-Hill site.
