ALEKS (Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces) is a Web-based system for individualized assessment and learning available 24/7 over the Internet. ALEKS uses artificial intelligence to accurately determine a student's knowledge and then guides her to the material that she is most ready to learn.
ALEKS' highly targeted instruction helps students build tremendous learning momentum by guiding them through arrays of problems that illustrate and reinforce their understanding of concepts. ALEKS offers immediate feedback and access to ALEKSPedia - an interactive text that contains more than 400 concise entries on chemistry topics.
ALEKS is also a full-featured course management system with rich reporting features that allow instructors to monitor individual and class performance, set student goals, assign/grade online quizzes, and more. ALEKS allows instructors to spend more time on concepts while ALEKS teaches students practical problem solving skills.
Active use of ALEKS will dramatically increase student grade performance and success in class.
The 360 means that within your ALEKS online course, your student has access to a textbook specific eBook.

Martin S. Silberberg received his B.S. in chemistry from the City University of New York in 1966 and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Oklahoma, in 1971. He then accepted a research position at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where he studied the chemical nature of neurotransmission and Parkinson's disease. In 1977, Dr. Silberberg joined the faculty of Simon's Rock College of Bard (Massachusetts), a liberal arts college known for its excellence in teaching small classes of highly motivated students. As Head of the Natural Sciences Major and Director of Premedical Studies, he taught courses in general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and nonmajors chemistry. The close student contact afforded him insights into how students learn chemistry, where they have difficulties, and what strategies can help them succeed. In 1983, Dr. Silberberg decided to apply these insights in a broader context and established a text writing and editing company. Before writing his own text, he worked on chemistry, biochemistry, and physics texts for several major college publishers. He resides with his wife and child in Massachusetts. For relaxation, he cooks, sings, and walks in the woods.
