Commonwealth University requires a mathematics ability assessment to determine readiness for various courses. Students in particular majors are required to use the ALEKS Placement, Preparation, and Learning system. Other students may choose to use this system to better prepare for classes. The ALEKS placement system covers material from Basic Math through Pre-Calculus and will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. After the assessment, a targeted Prep and Learning Module is available for you to review and better understand this material. The Learning Modules will help you improve your placement and eventual course outcomes.
