Parliament Tutoring in Adult Basic Education
Finding employment in the US workplace often requires familiarity with new and more complex computerized versions of familiar business machines – the cash register, calculator, word processor, and more. Additionally, mastery of the basic skills taught in US secondary schools is necessary to succeed in most jobs, enter the US military, and prepare for most vocational and other higher level educational programs.
If you are not a high school graduate, you may be required to show that you have attained basic business machine skills by taking a proficiency test. Academic skills may be measured by taking one of two standardized tests. The most common are the General Educational Development test, the GED, and the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE.) Each is designed to measure an individual's quantitative and analytical skills at or around the high school level.
What do the Tests Contain?
The GED test is a battery of four tests, Math - Quantitative & algebraic problem solving, Science - Life science, physical science, earth and space science. Social Studies - Civics and government, U.S. history, economics, geography and the world, and Reasoning through Language Arts - Ability to read closely, write clearly, and edit and understand written text.
The TABE test is made up of questions that have to do with four major topics: Reading, Mathematics Computation, Applied Mathematics, and Language.
