Before You Start - Information on Taking the Assessment

You will take the test at home, and you will need the following:

  • Your WIU ID number and password
  • Pencil and paper
  • A reliable internet connection
  • 2-3 hours of uninterrupted time in a quiet place where you can do your best

Dates and deadlines:

  • Complete the test by August 14 (Fall semester), or January 8 (Spring semester)

Advice:

  • Don't use a personal calculator. If one is needed to answer a question, ALEKS will provide one automatically for that question, which will also make entering the answer easier
  • Don't use other resources such as textbooks, websites, or friends
