Strategic sequencing would also help (rather than randomly picking).   My older students who at least know things like the fives and tens are 'way ahead of the "where's the calculator" group.

I'm afraid there's been a cultural shift and ... people seem to respond more to the mystical "don't ask us how!  We'll just get it perfect every time!"  sales stuff.   I think it has to do with how they were educated. People who try to promote things that are "really good -- and here's why, though it isn't perfect and it's still evolving"  are old school Scientific method types...

I agree.  I found it really interesting that Walcerz said student beliefs and behaviors were the problem -- but then the "example" of this focused on the high percentage of adjuncts & the reliance on grad students.  THose aren't, actually, examples of student beliefs and behaviors.   
       If the student "self-regulation" was such a big deal, it makes me wonder -- maybe the students were, oh, going to Facebook instead of using ALEKS and then they were saying they were "on track." 
     Our school has lots more success, with ALEKS --  but students have teachers who are teaching them, not monitoring ALEKS progress.   ALEKS is the practice.   THey've set things up, for instance, so students take quizzes -- and get three cracks at them.   (I work in a computer lab where many of them come to do that stuff.)   THey learn a lot about how to study and learn.   I had students ecstatic because they were getting 100% on quizzes... and I can also tell you that yes, they're retaining and transferring more (they keep coming back for those next levels).
