The TABE has three major areas: Reading, Language, and Mathematics, all the answers are in multiple-choice format.

Session 1: Locator (80 minutes) / Math (70 minutes)
Session 2: Reading (120 minutes)

After testing, an official score report can be requested, via email. If any score in any subject does not meet the Basic Skills graduation requirements, remediation will be required.  Self-Paced online remediation is free, and individuals are encouraged to focus their study to meet their needs.  If students prefer a more traditional approach to learning, Carol Barcena offers remediation on the East Campus. The cost of the remediation program is $45.00 payable in the Cashier’s Office. Retesting, at no charge, occurs after remediation hours are met.  Please contact the Testing Center for remediation options and additional instructions.
