Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces (ALEKS) is an assessment and learning system that evaluates a student’s mathematical knowledge and determines readiness for particular courses at Loyola. All entering first-year students without AP/IB/transfer credit in mathematics must take the assessment, and students will not be permitted to take a course unless they have demonstrated readiness.
For additional information, including how to understand and improve your ALEKS score, visit the ALEKS Assessment page. To take the assessment, log in to LORA and go to the Student Schedule tab, then click ALEKS Math Placement. For questions about the ALEKS Assessment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
