Test of Adult Basic Education is the official academic assessment tool used by Marion Technical College.
Marion Technical College requires all incoming students for the Adult General Education and most students in Career and Technical programs to take the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) assessment. This assessment measure the reading, language, and mathematics abilities of students using a grade level equivalency scale. The TABE is a nationally recognized assessment of those abilities and provides results which are not only measurable, but a detailed account of academic deficiencies to accurately focus remediation resources towards areas of need.
In the area of Adult General Education, which include General Education Development (GED) and Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs, the TABE is used as an initial assessment of skills to assist staff in determining the starting point for each student to achieve his/her goal of earning a high school diploma. As students progress through the GED program, students are re-assessed using the TABE to determine the current level of each student, and further assist in developing the academic plan towards earning a high school diploma.
