  • ALEKS Math Placement

    ALEKS – Math Placement Assessment

    Prior to the summer of 2018, ALEKS was the primary tool used to appropriately place students into introductory math courses. Beginning in the summer of 2018, however, FIU has adopted a new math placement model (MPM version 1.0) that replaces ALEKS as the primary placement tool. The MPM, considers, among others, three key variables for predicting the highest course in which a student might be successful. The most significant predictor variables were determined to be, in order, (1) unweighted overall high school GPA, (2) SAT Quantitative/ACT Math score, and (3) the difficulty of the highest level high school math course in which students enrolled.

    For some students, however, it may still be necessary for them to take the ALEKS. Unlike the new, math placement model, ALEKS, Placement, Preparation, and Learning (PPL) is a web-based, artificially intelligent system that "accurately measures the student's math foundation and creates a personalized learning module to review and refresh lost knowledge, allowing the student to be placed successfully".

    For those for whom the ALEKS PPL remains necessary, detailed information is provided below.

    Where and how do I sign up to take the ALEKS PPL?


    Please Note: if you are a Dual Enrollment student, please follow the directions on the "ALEKS Dual Enrollment" tab below.

    To re-take an assessment (up to 4 retakes allowed with no additional ALEKS fees)

    What can I expect on the assessment?

    First of all, you do not need a calculator. If a question requires the use of a calculator, one will appear on your screen. Before you start the assessment, a short tutorial is provided to familiarize you with the ALEKS dashboard. The assessment will consist of up to 30 open-ended questions, with varying degrees of difficulty. You will not know whether your answer is correct or not. Your initial answer determines what question you are asked next, as ALEKS probes the depth of your knowledge. Because of the adaptive nature of the assessment, you will not be permitted to go back to change your answers. Therefore, try to answer the questions to the best of your ability. You should answer “I don’t know” only if you truly do not know the answer.

    How long does the assessment take? Is there a time limit?

    You will have 2 hours and 30 minutes. The assessment should be completed in one sitting, so plan accordingly. The time starts when you begin the assessment. After 2 hours and 30 minutes, the assessment will close and you will be assigned the score earned at that time. If you are not happy with that score, you can retake the assessment after 48 hours have elapsed and completed 3 hours within the prep module.

    How do I find out my ALEKS score?

    Your ALEKS score appears after you complete the assessment and will be available to your advisor within 24-48 hours. If you need it sooner, please print the results from within your ALEKS account. Click here to access your ALEKS single sign-on page. 

    Can I take the assessment more than once?

    Yes. Within your initial ALEKS assessment purchase, you can take the assessment up to five times.

    How much does the assessment cost?

    The test fee consists of $25 payable to ALEKS Corporation. 

    Is there an additional proctoring fee to take the exam?

    Yes, remote proctoring fees with ProctorU or any approved testing facility will apply.

    Will the score appear on my transcript?

    No, the score will be available to your advisor and used only to place you in a class in which you are most likely to succeed.

    To access your records:

    • Log in to your ALEKS portal using your FIU credentials (single sign-on)
    • Click on the view report button on the left side of your dashboard. Depending on your score, you may be directed to the free Prep and Learning Module.
  • LSAT

    Law School Admission Test (LSAT)

    The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a half-day, standardized test. It is an integral part of the law school admission process in the United States, Canada, and a growing number of other countries. It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants.

    The test consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions and a 35-minute writing sample response at the end. LSAC does not score the writing sample, but copies of the writing sample are sent to all law schools to which you apply.
