Admissions testing is completed by taking the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) assessment. Students should make an appointment in advance to test with a Student Success Officer.
Results from this assessment will help identify your academic strengths and needs in Reading, Math, and Language. Based on your results, you will be placed in courses appropriate for your skill level, ensuring a successful beginning in your classes and college career.
If you don’t get the grade level needed on your first try of the assessment, you can always retake the assessment in that subject area.
UBTech also offers the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Strong Interest Inventory, both are helpful tools in determining a career path and occupational exploration.
There is no charge for program Admissions Testing, the TABE assessment. There is a small fee for the MBTI and Strong Interest Inventory.
Testing Preparation Resources:
For most people, testing can be a nerve-wracking process. The Student Success Center is here to help and wants you to succeed. You may find the suggested links helpful. TABE study guides are available in the Student Success Center and on this page at Testing Preparation Materials.
What If I Don’t Pass the Assessment?
If you don’t pass your first try of the assessment, depending on your scores, you can retake after waiting one week.
If you don’t pass your retake, you can take a refresher course called Basic Skills Math, Basic Skills Reading, Basic Skills Language, Computer Literacy, or Typing. This short, self-paced course will help you remember or develop the skills you need to pass testing and enroll in your desired program.
Are There Testing Deadlines?
For some programs, there are no deadlines since they are open-entry/open-exit. However, if your program has a specific start and end dates, you will need to check with the Student Success Center for specific assessment deadlines.
Typically, you should begin the assessment at least one month prior to the application deadline.
