Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE) Classes
The TABE classes are designed to be short-term refresher courses on basic material. The literacy class is designed to improve comprehension or the ability to remember what was read.
Our literacy program is the Read180 program by Scholastic. It is the most researched program for young adults. We have a high rate of success in raising students' reading comprehension levels. There is also a writing portion which assists students in learning to write both for business and for fun.
Our math program is skills-based and self-paced. The math instruction is over the basic areas covered on the TABE. As such, it is mostly a refresher course of things people have forgotten or not used in a long time. There is also a focus on life-skills math such as taxes, check books, credit cards, etc.
Tutors and academic support
Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in math, reading, and writing by instructors or by fellow students (Peer Student Tutors). Students interested in getting into a tutoring program may contact their instructors or the Academic Manager.
