Tutoring & Testing


Tutoring Services at Kent State Ashtabula provides free tutoring for current Kent State students in most subjects taught by Ashtabula Campus faculty. 

Peer tutors assist students with:

  • homework assignments
  • help clarifying lecture and classroom material 
  • reviewing for exams
  • help preparing for and practicing class presentations

For students who need help with effective study strategies, faculty tutors are also available. There is no appointment necessary. Simply walk into one of our centers located on the first floor of the Campus Library. 

The Academic Success Center also proctors exams as a courtesy to faculty and students. We offer proctoring services for make-up exams, online classes, and student accessibility services. Students must contact the Center at least 48 hours in advance to schedule an appointment for a proctored exam. You must provide a photo ID to take a proctored exam.

ALEKS Math Placement Test

What is ALEKS Math Assessment?

ALEKS is a powerful artificial intelligence (AI)-based assessment software product that zeros in on the student's mathematical strengths and weaknesses, reports its findings, and then if necessary provides a learning module to improve the student's knowledge and skill. ALEKS will not ask multiple choice questions. Before beginning the assessment, students will complete an online tutorial so they know how to enter answers in ALEKS. The tutorial and placement may take up to 90 minutes to complete.
