ALEKS offers a detailed correlation to STAAR that provides dynamic, online reporting so teachers and administrators can easily track student progress toward the new standards and better direct learning in preparation for the state assessment.

ALEKS is a Research-Based Online Math Program:

“At ALEKS, it is crucial that we continue to provide mathematics solutions that effectively meet the needs of students and teachers,” said Wil Lampros, President of ALEKS Corporation. “Correlating ALEKS courses to the STAAR standards helps teachers to provide targeted coverage of critical math skills and ensures students successfully meet these standards through their own personalized learning path. With the variety of reports ALEKS offers, teachers and administrators will have a precise picture of student progress toward STAAR goals at all times.”

ALEKS uses artificial intelligence and adaptive questioning to accurately assess a student’s knowledge and deliver individualized instruction on the exact topics the student is most ready to learn. As a result, ALEKS targets gaps in student skills and facilitates immediate success in learning new material. ALEKS course products correlated to the STAAR standards are available for immediate use and can be implemented as a core curriculum or supplement for students in grades 3-12.
