TABE

 

TABE is a norm-referenced test.  A norm-referenced test compares an examinee's scores to a group that took the tests and provided "normal" scores.  The results are reported as a percentage as compared to the norming group.  A scaled score represents an educational level at which a student can be placed.  To learn more about TABE, go to the Data Recognition Corporation (DRC) website.

DRC has created an online training option for individuals to complete on their own time. Those that want to choose this option can go to https://tabetest.com/tabe-1112-certification-process/. To be certified to administer the TABE 11 & 12 tests, the individual must complete both Parts 1 and 2. The training links, along with the needed password, can be found on the first document.

TABE 11 & 12 Implementation Training

This is a basic, introductory training, designed to introduce participants to the administration of TABE !!&12 assessments, and walk them through the process, from Locator test to post-test.  The intended audience for this training includes:

 

  • New teachers who are not familiar with the TABE 11&12 assessment system

  • Other new support staff who may be responsible for intake and assessment

  • Intake and support staff who may be familiar with TABE assessments, but who want to gain a better understanding of TABE 11&12

 

Implementation trainings are 3 hours long. The optimal number of participants is 8 to 25 people. These trainings are available to Minnesota ABE consortia and their partners. Please contact Marty Olsen (martha.olsen@gmail.com) to schedule a training.

Remote Testing with TABE

  • When the intake staff is comfortable with computer-based testing, they may choose to implement remote testing. There is information about the remote testing options at http://tabetest.com/PDFs/TABE_AND_TABE_CLAS-E_REMOTE_PROCTORING.pdf.

  • This document includes instructions for both the proctor and the student involved in remote testing.
