Simplify Test Administration and Reporting
with TABE CLAS-E Online

A Secure Web-Based Version of TABE Complete Language Assessment System—English

With the success of TABE® 11&12, and over 10 million TABE tests given on the DRC INSIGHT™ online testing platform, TABE CLAS-E™ moves into the 21st century by adding it to the TABE online suite of assessments.

TABE CLAS-E users now have the ability to leverage the user-friendly DRC INSIGHT testing platform with an assessment designed specifically for adult English language learners. There is no other test in the adult market that assesses the four content areas of Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking—and now, it will serve even more adult learners by being offered online.

Benefits of Testing Online with TABE CLAS-E
