Florida, Texas Approve ELL Assessment

The Florida Department of Education and the Texas Education Agency and Texas Learns have approved CTB/McGraw-Hill’s TABE CLAS-E English language proficiency assessment for Adult Basic Education Programs.

With the Florida approval, TABE CLAS-E can be used in Adult English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) or English Literacy for Career and Technical Education (ELCATE) programs for students whose first language is not English.

In Texas, TABE is the only test accepted by Texas Education Agency and Texas Learns that meets all statewide regulatory requirements for adult education programs, applicable to school districts, community colleges, and workforce and worksource centers.

TABE CLAS-E provides teachers with a system that identifies the instructional needs of adult English language learners by assessing their reading, listening, writing, and speaking skills. An optional speaking test gives teachers maximum flexibility in how they assess their students.
