Interpret My Score

The information below is for professional undergraduate students at APU’s regional campuses. Traditional undergraduate students at the Azusa campus can find math placement assessment information through the Academic Success Center’s Testing Services.

Congratulations on completing an ALEKS assessment! Your score represents the percentage of high school math topics (through the end of precalculus) that ALEKS considers you to have mastered.

See the table below to determine whether your ALEKS score qualifies you to take the math course(s) required for your major. If you need to raise your score, review using your Prep and Learning Module for at least 3 hours and then take another ALEKS assessment. Many APU students have been able to substantially raise their scores by using ALEKS to review and then retaking the assessment! We recommend you spend up to 20 hours reviewing with ALEKS to prepare you to do the best you can in your math classes at APU.
