All new Kent State University students are required to take the ALEKS placement test for mathematics. ALEKS is a powerful artificial intelligence-based (AI) assessment software product that zeroes 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. The ALEKS placement may take up to 90 minutes to complete and should be completed in a single sitting. For more information on ALEKS, log into FlashLine > Student > Resources > Placement Assessments > Math.
The ALEKS placement test can be taken online from home through FlashLine. Students who wish to take the ALEKS placement test at the campus may do so in the Cyber Cafe located on the second floor of Founders Hall, Monday - Thursday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.
