Math Placement Testing at LSSU

LSSU uses ALEKS PPL (Placement, Preparation, and Learning) for all math placement testing. ALEKS PPL uses online placement tests to help accurately place students in the appropriate math course based on their current skill level. ALEKS PPL then gives students access to individualized Prep and Learning Modules to allow them to work on improving their math skills and course placement.
