ALEKS Chemistry Placement Assessment

Take the Assessment

If you plan to take General Chemistry I (CHEM 10060), you are required to take the online ALEKS Chemistry assessment.


  • SUMMER 2019: Take the online ALEKS Chemistry assessment beginning Wednesday, April 24, 2019.
  • To take the assessment, log into FlashLine > Student > Resources > Placement Assessment > Chemistry.
  • You should take your initial ALEKS Chemistry assessment, which typically takes about an hour, when you can complete it in a single sitting. If you spend more than 90 minutes on the initial assessment, your account will be reset, and you will need to start over.
  • To be eligible to take CHEM 10060, you must achieve 100% on the ALEKS Chemistry assessment, which consists of 90 topics.
  • You will be periodically reassessed (each time 20 topics are learned) until you have mastered or learned all 90 core topics. You do not need to take the Goal Completion Assessment that will be offered to you once your mastered topics plus your learned topics equal 90 (or 100%).
  • Only students who attain 100% mastery on the initial placement assessment or who reach 100% through the use of the learning modules by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 will be permitted to remain registered for CHEM 10060.


  • SUMMER 2019: 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, 2019.
  • In order to demonstrate learning 100% of the material by the deadline, it is likely that you will need to invest significant extra time. Take the assessment as early as possible.
