you have questions about how to choose the best program to meet your
curriculum needs or which components a successful program should include?

questions to ask when choosing an online math program for your homeschool

creating and assigning quizzes that are automatically graded by ALEKS;

- When taking higher level math
courses, is college credit available?

Council on Education (ACE) credit-recommended courses.
- What do other homeschoolers have to
say about the program?
ALEKS has been used successfully by homeschoolers, as well as by
millions of students at
institutions throughout the world. Here is just a sample of the
feedback received from homeschoolers using ALEKS:
"As a mom, I like that ALEKS is easy to use and keeps records for the
school year. For my children, they like the simplicity of the program
and being able to choose new topics to learn while not having to deal
with repetitive book lessons. I have seen a steady improvement in all
three of my children while using ALEKS. One child added 67 topics in 17
hours of study, while another added 25 topics in 11 hours of study." --
Julie C., Homeschooler, WA
"ALEKS gives parents the ability to see their child's current progress
at any time. My son loves the flexibility of working on a different
topic if he's a little stuck on a particular skill. I also appreciate
that it's not a multiple-choice type of program. He has to think about
it and provide an answer he came up with." -- Dianne G., Homeschooler, CO
- Is the program affordable for your
ALEKS can be purchased for $19.95 per month, $99.95 for 6 months, or
