ALEKS for Differentiated Instruction
I have been using ALEKS in a half block algebra 1 lab since August. I have recently started using Homework Quizzes to facilitate small group instruction. I can look through their pie chart reports and see what objectives each student is struggling with. I put them in groups of three and spend about five minutes with each group. After the discussion, they go back to ALEKS and they have two chances to complete a 5 question quiz on the topic we just discussed. ALEKS is very personalized, it is easy to assign custom quizzes to each student for the topic their group discussed.
