ALEKS PPL Department of Math & Statistics



ALEKS Placement, Preparation, and Learning (PPL) is designed to determine what mathematical content students know and where students need to improve in preparation for taking mathematics and statistics courses at Sacramento State.

Although not required, ALEKS PPL will help students have a better sense of their strengths and weaknesses. Students will also have a chance to brush up on topics. Students whose major requires mathematics or statistics courses are encouraged to complete Part I of the ALEKS PPL process. Please note that not all students will need to complete Part II of the ALEKS PPL process. See the "Guidelines for Taking ALEKS PPL" linked at the right for more information.
