Tests of Adult Basic Education

Testing Center

Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE) test scores are required of all students in occupational and certificate programs to meet the Florida Department of Education’s minimum basic skill requirements. The TABE test is a broad range achievement test that measures basic skills in reading, language, mathematics, and spelling. The complete battery requires approximately four hours.

Some programs require TABE completion prior to registration. Please see the college catalog for those programs.

Students with disabilities may request test accommodations by contacting the college’s disabilities specialist prior to testing.
