TABE 11&12

  • TABE 11&12 is 100% aligned to the new College- and Career-Readiness Standards.
  • TABE 11&12 will be only one length; no longer will there be a long and short form.
  • The new tests will be approximately 40 questions per section.
  • Math will also only be one test, not a separated Math Comp and Applied Math as TABE 9&10 has.
  • The Locator test will be lengthened slightly to make it more predictive in placing students into the new TABE 11&12.
  • TABE 11&12 will only have three sections, Reading, Math, and Language. There will not be Spelling, Vocabulary and Language Mechanics like TABE 9&10 has.
  • Options are being reviewed on how TABE 11&12 will align/predict to other high school equivalency tests besides the TASC Test Assessing Secondary Completion™
