2.9. How long will the assessment take, and what materials will I need?

The ALEKS PPL Assessment is about 30 questions. It generally takes 60-90 minutes to complete, but students have up to 3 hours to complete it.  You cannot save and come back to the test; you must complete it in one sitting. 


Materials allowed are: blank scratch paper, a writing utensil, and an approved calculator.

No other materials, persons, websites, etc. are allowed. No Cell Phones are allowed in the testing area.


You can use a calculator. A TI-83 or 84 is recommended.  If you have a different calculator, check here to make sure it is allowed. Calculator models that use symbolic manipulation are not allowed, and the use of such a calculator will result in an invalidated test score and possibly a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.

These models are not allowed: TI-Nspire CX CAS, TI-89, TI-89 Titanium, TI-92, Casio ClassPad II fx-CP400, Casio ClassPad 330 PLUS, Casio ALGEBRA FX 2.0 PLUS, HP Prime Graphing Calculator, HP 49/50 series.
