After taking the initial Math Placement Test, you have the opportunity to use a Learning Module within ALEKS to refresh your knowledge of the mathematical topics unique to your MyPie results. ALEKS tells you which mathematical topics you know, and which ones you're ready to learn.

- Will help you further prepare for your Mathematics courses, increasing your likelihood of success.
- Will help you place into your preferred Mathematics course, saving both time and money.
- Is required before retaking the Math Placement Test.
- Has been shown to significantly improve both student success and course performance.

Meeting the cutoff score for your preferred course is a great start, but does not guarantee success. It's highly recommended that you spend time in a Learning Module to increase your preparation for your math course.

As you answer questions, you'll see your MyPie fill up, and ALEKS may reassess you from time to time to ensure you have retained the topic information, but this does not count as one of your retests.

Your Learning Module will be available for 1 year after your initial Math Placement test; however, once you begin working in a Learning Module, you will have access for 6 months. Additional access to ALEKS can be purchased, if needed, by contacting: mathplacement@math.oregonstate.edu

Please note: You may choose only one Learning Module. If you are unsure which module to select, use the module recommended by ALEKS.

Retaking the Math Placement Test:

- Before retaking the ALEKS Math Placement Test, you must spend at least 3 hours in your Learning Module, but the more time spent, the higher the likelihood of course placement and course success.
- A retest will become available 48 hours after your previous test attempt.
- The test can be retaken a maximum of four times.
