How does AcerPlacer work?
AcerPlacer is a company that focuses on personalized math instruction that helps students test out of college math. We offer small class sizes, with no more than 8 students per class. We cover relevant material from developmental math class along the way, so that students from any background in math can succeed while ensuring an understanding in higher level concepts.
With us, there is no need to take lower-level math classes – once you test out, you will meet your Quantitative Literacy requirement at Weber State. You can be done with math in as little as 7 weeks! If you are going to another college or university, our course can help accelerate you into the highest math class you need to graduate (even up to calculus)! Our class does not count as college credit, however our instructors guide you through subjects covered in 950-1050.
When is the next class? What times are your courses offered?
We have classes starting every seven weeks. We have morning, afternoon, and evening classes. For specific times and start dates, please visit our “calendar” page.

What is ALEKS?
Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly your starting level in math. By improving your score, you can test out of lower-level classes.
