Data Recognition Corporation Launches TABE 11&12

MINNEAPOLIS, January 8, 2018 – Data Recognition Corporation (DRC), the nation’s leading provider of assessments for the adult education market, announced today the release of TABE 11&12. Based on the new national College and Career Readiness Standards, TABE 11&12 builds upon the well-established reputation of the TABE family of tests and measures the necessary skills to be successful.

For over 50 years, TABE has been the most widely used and well-respected assessment in adult education. With this new edition, TABE not only remains the most comprehensive and reliable assessment in adult education, it also provides a solid foundation for effectively measuring the needed skills and knowledge of adult learners, by directly assessing the new College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education set by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE).

”This new edition of TABE provides a solid alignment among adult education, postsecondary education, workforce development, and high school equivalency, including an articulated alignment to one of the most widely used high school equivalency exams, TASC Test Assessing Secondary Completion™,” noted Marcus Ripp, DRC Product Director for TABE and TASC Test “With this articulation, TABE 11&12 is the only adult education assessment that provides for a measure of the content in ELA/literacy and mathematics most relevant in helping prepare adult learners for high school equivalency and for future success in postsecondary educational programs, work-related training programs, and careers.”

TABE’s history of achievement began in 1967. Since that time multiple editions of the TABE test have been delivered—TABE 1&2, 3&4, 5&6, 7&8, 9&10, and now TABE 11&12. The TABE product family bas also expanded to include web-based administration (TABE Online), English language proficiency assessment (TABE CLAS-E), and solutions to improve instructor effectiveness and student achievement (TABE Professional Development).
