Printable Version of the Placement Assessment Cut Scores for Math

  • Once you have completed the ALEKS® placement assessment your score will immediately be visible
  • If you want to view your score at a later date after the placement assessment you can do this by logging into FlashLine and selecting the ALEKS® Math Placement. Once you are in ALEKS®, click the assessment button and your score will appear. Also, your score is also automatically added to your Kent State student profile which is accessible by your adviser one day after you have completed the assessment
  • You may improve your score by completing a six week ALEKS® learning module, then registering for a reassessment. This is the only way to change your placement to a different mathematics course. Students who score at least 80% mastery in their Learning Module have an excellent chance of improving their placement on an ALEKS® reassessment. Please visit the Placement Channel on the Student Tools tab in FlashLine to link to the Learning Modules
  • Course numbers for 00020-00024 were changed beginning in Fall 2013. The previous numbers were 10020-10024. If you have questions about these changes, please contact your academic advisor
