Educators use the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) to provide a solid foundation for effectively assessing the skills and knowledge of adult learners.

The TABE Online provides reliable, skill-level data to screen and place students in training and employment programs or determine readiness for success. TABE Online includes the Locator, Complete Battery, and Survey tests for TABE 9&10.

Complete Battery consists of five test levels (Literacy, Easy, Medium, Difficult, and Advanced), two test forms (9 and 10), and a Locator Test.
