When Can I Reassess?

sample ALEKS sidebar showing reassessment conditions

You must work in your Learning Module for at least five hours between placement assessments.

There's a 48 hour "cooling off" period after each placement assessment. You can work in your Learning Module during this time, but you can't start a new placement assessment until the cooling off period has ended.

You can find the current information about your reassessment eligibility in the sidebar of your ALEKS homepage, in the gray "Placement Assessment" region below the blue "Up Next:" region of the sidebar.

If a lock icon is shown, at least one of the conditions for reassessment hasn't been met yet.

If you're still cooling off from your most recent placement assessment, ALEKS will show you when the cooling off period will end.

If you haven't worked in your Learning Module for at least five hours, ALEKS will show you how much more time you need to spend practicing in your Module before you can reassess.

When you're eligible to reassess, the lock icon will be replaced with a START button.

Don't delay!

Your ALEKS PPL license and Learning Module are valid for one year.

If your license has expired, you can apply for a new license, but it's best to make full use of your original ALEKS PPL license. An additional license costs $20; you cannot purchase a new license while your original license is still valid.
