ALEKS Boot Camp

LSAMP offers two (2) academic boot camps per year for students who need remedial instruction in Math and Science courses. Our most used and popular boot camp is, ALEKS. The ALEKS (Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces), is a computer-based tutorial program designed to train students in math (up to calculus). ALEKS trains students based on their performance on an initial pre-test. As they complete the training daily, the math level gradually progresses to their desired level of achievement. Scores are recorded and displayed until mastery is reached. To participate in the LSAMP ALEKS boot camp, please contact the LSAMP coordinator.
