Preparing for TABE
TABE is a diagnostic test used to determine a person’s skill levels and aptitudes. Many companies use it in hiring, promotions, or for selecting employees for training programs for skilled positions. The TABE test is also used by public service agencies who are guiding people into adult education programs, such as getting a high school equivalency (HSE), going to trade school, etc.
TABE tests skills and aptitudes in reading, math, and English, as you’ll apply them in the workforce or classroom. Although there’s -no such thing as passing or failing the TABE test, your score can determine your eligibility for many programs that can have a positive effect on your life situation. It’s important to be prepared for the test. Make arrangements to take the test through the school or agency that’s requiring it.
