Jacob Cunningham started this petition to WCS

ALEKS are completely useless and a waste of time. They are supposed to be used to teach us standards for our grade level in math, however all they do is waste 30 minutes of our week and a headache or too. If WCS wants to give us math homework, fine. While obviously none of us would like it, we would do any worksheet over ALEKS. We are expected to do 10 topics a week every week, and the topics do not even follow the current curriculum that we are covering! For example, if we are learning about angles currently, but ALEKS have me do all my topics on inequalities, I have to learn a completely NEW SKILL SET, just to get one topic done that I am eventually going to have to do again because of the knowledge check. Knowledge checks have to be one of the most annoying things about the ALEKS software. You could be on your last topic after a long hour or two of work, and BAM! An extra half hour because of a knowledge check. Not only is ALEKS not beneficial for the students, but it's not beneficial for the teachers or our TCAP scores either! One thing students do a lot is they will purposely fail the knowledge check time after time so they get easy topics every time!  Not only that, but you can literally just look up answers as well! It makes no sense for anybody and I am sure that students and teachers would love finding an alternative for it.
