McGraw-Hill Education, Inc. Key Developments

McGraw-Hill Education Announces the Release of an Upgraded Version of ALEKS Placement, Preparation and Learning (PPL), an Adaptive Placement Solution

McGraw-Hill Education announced the release of an upgraded version of ALEKS Placement, Preparation and Learning (PPL), an adaptive placement solution that has revolutionized how colleges assess and prepare incoming students in math and helps them lower failure rates and increase retention. By combining smart assessment with adaptive learning tools, ALEKS PPL helps students quickly relearn lost knowledge before re-taking the assessment and increases the likelihood they will be placed into higher-level math courses. Colleges that use ALEKS PPL have reported placing fewer students into developmental math courses and seen improved freshman retention rates, leading to large cost and time-to-degree savings. The upgraded version of ALEKS PPL includes: 1) An improved and modernized interface for administrators and students. 2) A redesign that encourages students to take advantage of the Prep & Learning section of the tool so they can practice, learn and fill gaps in their math knowledge. 3) Improved dashboard data reporting for administrators, highlighting areas where students need intervention.
