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.

Jason Overby received his B.S. degree in chemistry and political science from the University of Tennessee at Martin. He then received his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Vanderbilt University (1997) studying main group and transition metal metallocenes and related compounds. Afterwards, Jason conducted postdoctoral research in transition metal organometallic chemistry at Dartmouth College. Jason began his academic career at the College of Charleston in 1999 as an assistant professor. Currently, he is an associate professor with teaching interests in general and inorganic chemistry. He is also interested in the integration of technology into the classroom, including the use of online homework. Additionally, he conducts research with undergraduates in inorganic and organic synthetic chemistry as well as computational organometallic chemistry.
Dr. Julia Burdge did most of her undergraduate work at Iowa State University, completing her bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in inorganic chemistry at the University of South Florida in Tampa. She earned her Ph.D. in analytical chemistry at the University of Idaho. Her Master’s and doctoral research involved the development of chemotherapeutic analogs of cisplatin and the development of instruments and methods for measuring ultra-trace concentrations of atmospheric sulfur compounds. Over the past 20 years, she has taught introductory and advanced courses in every division of the undergraduate chemistry curriculum, as well as interdisciplinary courses. She also developed and taught a new introductory chemistry course for pre-service science teachers, and initiated and served as a mentor in a future faculty development program for graduate students and post-doctoral associates. She is currently affiliated with the University of Idaho.
