The Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) is a standardized basic skills assessment that will assign a grade level of 0.0-12.9 for reading, math, and language for potential students.  Scores are good for one year.  You cannot fail the TABE.  It is used as a tool to help instructors make a learning plan that will work for a potential student.  The TABE is the most widely used assessment in the adult education field.  All Adult Basic Education students entering the Career and College Readiness program are required to take the TABE.

The TABE is available Monday through Friday in the Academic Studies Center, located in the Kenneth B. Hurst Continuing Education Building, in room 200.  There are testing sessions available by appointment at 9:00 am, 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm each day.  Appointments for testing at 5:00 pm are available upon request on Tuesday and Wednesday.  A photo ID is required.
