ALEKS Corporation (McGraw Hill)

ALEKS Corporation is a leader in the creation of Web-based, artificially intelligent, educational software. ALEKS assessment and learning technologies were originally developed by a team of cognitive scientists and software engineers at the University of California, Irvine, with major funding from the National Science Foundation. ALEKS is founded on groundbreaking research in mathematical cognitive science known as Knowledge Space Theory. Through adaptive questioning, ALEKS accurately assesses a student's knowledge state and then delivers targeted instruction on the exact topics the student is most ready to learn.

ALEKS has been used by millions of students in over 100 different mathematics, science, and business courses at thousands of K-12 schools, colleges, and universities throughout the world.

ALEKS Corporation began serving students and educational institutions in 1999. In 2013, ALEKS Corporation announced that it would be acquired by McGraw-Hill Education. This represents an evolution of their long-term partnership to help students succeed. The combined company will be able to help many more students, and to accelerate the achievement of their shared vision for transforming education through innovative technology and the highest quality content.
