TABE 11 & 12
TABE® is powered by DRC INSIGHT™, the industry-leading online assessment system already delivering reliable assessments to over half of the U.S. With DRC INSIGHT you can add more flexibility and reliability to your testing program, with the same measure of student achievement you have come to know and trust with TABE.
- 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™
