Assessment, Basic Skills
Math and English language skills are important for success in training programs. The College assists adult students in achieving their potential by assessing their basic skill levels in math and the English language using the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) Locator/Survey or by evaluating their skills through high school or college transcripts. High school students are not tested because their school counselor will determine if they have met the appropriate skill levels for the training program they are entering.
The TABE score will determine whether students will directly enroll in their program, simultaneously enroll in his/her program and the Learning Center, or begin their training in the Learning Center to improve their basic skills prior to the start of their chosen program. The TATC Enrollment Specialist works with students to determine the best approach for them.
