TABE Testing and Remediation

The Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) has mandated that each student enrolled in a certificate/diploma program meet minimum basic academic skill levels in reading, mathematics, and language in order to receive a Certificate of Completion or Applied Technology Diploma. A chart that shows the levels for each PSAV program offered at Erwin is available in the Appendix of the School Catalog, on the school’s website, and in hardcopy in the Student Services office. Prior to beginning vocational/technical training, all students take the Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE), a test that measures the required basic academic skill levels. TABE results are reported in grade-level equivalents. TABE test scores are valid for 24 months.

Erwin offers the TABE test in English. The test (TABE, Level 9D) begins promptly on Tuesday evenings at 5:00 p.m. and Thursday mornings at 10:00 a.m. No appointment is necessary. Applicants should arrive at the main office at least 30 minutes prior to testing. Seating is limited to the first 20 who arrive. Doors are locked once the testing session begins.  There is a $5 testing fee (cash or money order only). Picture IDs are required and Social Security numbers are requested at the time of testing. Cell phones are not permitted in the testing room. Children/others may not accompany applicants. 

If a prospective student does not meet the basic requirements for a specific program, he/she is encouraged to begin remediation as soon as possible. Applicants are referred to The Learning Center (TLC) at Erwin for assistance. Test results are used to create an individual education plan for remediation. Students register for The Learning Center on a first-come, first-served basis, as space permits.
