- Once you have completed the ALEKS placement assessment your score will immediately be visible.
- If you want to view your score at a later date after the placement assessment you can do this by logging in to FlashLine and selecting the ALEKS Mathematics Placement. Once you are in ALEKS, click the assessment button and your score will appear. Also, your score is also automatically added to your Kent student profile which is accessible by your advisor one day after you have completed the assessment.
