Experience the benefits of TABE Adaptive

As a computer adaptive test, TABE Adaptive adjusts and adapts to each student’s individual ability level, resulting in increased efficiency, reduced costs, and an improved test taking experience.

  • Quicker, shorter tests
    TABE Adaptive accurately determines a student’s score with fewer questions, reducing the overall length of the test.
  • No Locator Test
    Test students in approximately half the time of the current TABE Complete Battery test without the use of a pre-placement Locator Test.
  • Shorter testing times, without sacrificing score validity or reliability
    Since fewer items are needed to achieve an accurate score, TABE Adaptive reduces testing time while maintaining the same level of reliability.
  • Reduced testing costs
    Keeping testing times down reduces test delivery costs, student seat time, and the burden on staff.
  • Appropriately challenging exams
    With TABE Adaptive, each student receives test items that are appropriately challenging. As a result, students do not feel bored with questions that are too easy or frustrated with questions that are too difficult.
  • Improved accuracy
    TABE Adaptive delivers more precise measurement of all adult students, no matter where they fall on the ability continuum. Because TABE Adaptive can present items at any ability and skill level, it can compute an accurate score for high- and low-ability students.
  • Increased satisfaction
    Adjusting assessments to the unique ability level of each student results in a better test taking experience and a more positive attitude toward testing. Shorter tests also reduce student fatigue.
  • Increased test security
    Since virtually every assessment is unique and delivered online, TABE Adaptive offers greater test security and more accurate assessment results.
  • Objective Mastery Scores
    Reporting incorporates overall performance on TABE using Item Response Theory (IRT) and provides a profile of objective mastery using that overall TABE performance score.
  • Diagnostic skill evaluation and reporting needs
    With a complete integrated adult assessment and reporting system, you can easily fill all your diagnostic skill evaluation and reporting needs—for instruction and training capabilities, for GED Tests readiness, and for employment screening.
