Highland Adult Education offering free TABE testing sessions

FREEPORT The Highland Community College Adult Education Program will be holding additional Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) sessions. The TABE is designed to assess an individuals readiness to participate in adult education programs such as GED preparation, Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes and tutoring.

Previously, the TABE was given during Adult Education orientation classes. The new open exam schedule will allow for testing to take place before students enter orientation classes.

"By providing the TABE testing prior to orientation classes, our staff can respond quickly to a students desire to participate in adult education programming," said Mark Jansen, HCCs director of Adult Education. "In addition, by having a snapshot of the student prior to orientation classes, we can anticipate and plan to meet the individual needs of a diverse student population."

The sessions are free and open to the public. Most testing sessions take place the third or fourth week of each month on the HCC campus. Please call 815.599.3460 to register and for information on specific testing locations.
