Step Three: Testing & Assessments
An important component of the orientation and enrollment process is completing an assessment.
If you are interested in enrolling in our High School Equivalency Classes (formerly GED) or the Entrepreneurship Training (General), you will complete the Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE). The TABE is a comprehensive tool used to determine adult learners' skill levels in Reading, Language, and Math.
TABE Exam Tips provided by JOB TEST PREP
Read test instructions carefully.
Plan your time – answer the easy questions first; then return to the harder questions if you have time.
Keep in mind that TABE does not present trick questions.
Practicing on sample tests with questions that are similar to TABE test questions, is geared to more accurate TABE test answers.
Change an answer only if you are certain that your original answer is not correct.
Read each question carefully.
If you are interested in enrolling in English as a Second Language, Civics, Citizenship, Entrepreneurship Training (Civics) Classes, you will complete the BEST Plus 2.0 and BEST Literacy. BEST Plus 2.0 is an oral interview designed to assess your English language skills. BEST Plus 2.0 is a combined test of listening and speaking skills. BEST Literacy tests reading and writing skills in everyday situations specifically geared for adult English language learners.
Step Four: Class Placement & Structure
The Adult Education Center offers a class schedule within semesters: Fall, Spring, and Summer. We offer morning, afternoon, and evening classes. Class ratios range from 12 to 24 adult learners per class, depending on the class type, level, and adult learners’ initial test scores, skills, and needs. We also provide tutoring and distance learning options as appropriate.
Wait List Process
In the event, the Adult Education Center classes are full or at capacity. You will be placed on our waiting list. While on the waiting list, you will receive periodic updates on your status via telephone, email, or postcard. An option is to enroll in tutoring and distance learning offerings until there is class availability (also depends on capacity).
