 Publisher's Summary
 Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces is a Webbased, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. Aleks uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. Aleks then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, Aleks periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. Aleks courses are very complete in their topic coverage and Aleks avoids multiplechoice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an Aleks course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.
