What’s Covered in Assessments

ALEKS PPL placement assessments cover material ranging from properties of numbers up through trigonometry.  

You may encounter some topics that you haven’t seen before—that’s OK! These are assessments to determine what you do know, not exams to test you on material that you're expected to know.

Real numbers
fractions, integers, and percentages
Equations and inequalities
linear equations, linear inequalities, systems of linear equations, and quadratic equations
Linear and quadratic functions
graphs and functions, linear functions, and parabolas
Exponents and polynomials
integer exponents, polynomial arithmetic, factoring, and polynomial equations
Rational and radical expressions
rational equations and functions, higher roots, and rational exponents
Geometry
perimeter, area, volume, and coordinate geometry
Exponentials and logarithms
function compositions and inverses, logarithmic identities and equations
Trigonometry
trigonometric functions, identities, and equations
