The Advanced Distributed Learning Memphis Intelligent Tutoring Center at the University of Memphis is offering a unique and web-based tutorial system to college students and third- through 12th-graders this summer.

The SOLE (Summer Online Learning Experience) Program links students with ALEKS (Assessment Learning in Knowledge Spaces). ALEKS is a sophisticated online tutorial system that assesses each student’s knowledge and skill level and then provides them with an interactive, individualized, and self-paced tutoring system.

The SOLE program runs during June, July, and August and costs $36 for three months, which includes unlimited use of the ALEKS program for those who register by June 15. A late registration fee will be applied after that date.

College students can register for advanced mathematical concepts and topics, such as statistics, while grade-school children can sign up for tutoring in mathematics .

Previous studies conducted with ALEKS show that students who use ALEKS score higher than average on statewide-standardized exams, such as the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP).
