TABE: Test of Adult Basic Education

**You will likely not be tutoring for the TABE since it is used to assess a student's knowledge. **

TABE® remains the most comprehensive and reliable academic assessment product in adult basic education. Educators use TABE testing to provide a solid foundation for effectively assessing the skills and knowledge of adult learners. TABE and TABE CLAS–E™ tests combine to provide a flexible system of diagnostic assessments and instructional materials to meet the diverse needs of today's growing adult education market.
