TABE is a test of basic skills in reading, mathematics, and language at all levels. The test is designed to assess skills in the contexts that are most important to adults: life skills, work, and education.

TABE’s objectives are fully integrated, providing a complete picture of adult performance. TABE provides both norm-referenced and competency-based information to help you plan for individual, educational, and training needs.


TABE meets the Florida State requirements for an entry-level examination within the first six weeks of admission to a Workforce Development Program.
