Blank Documents for Replication
One of our underlying concerns was that students were not returning after taking the TABE 11/12 lull-length exam because of how rigorous the questions were and the length of time the test took. Southeast CTC will use feedback from students to identify if this is a barrier to successful GED® completion and what steps can be taken to overcome this barrier. The product is a student survey comparing the difficulty of the TABE 11/12 and the GED Ready®. We will use the data to determine how to advise students.
LIVE AND LEARN, MESSY MOMENTS
The student survey showed that students found the TABE 11/12 challenging and discouraging. The staff took a proactive approach to addressing the concerns of students and used tracking of both TABE 11/12 and GED® Ready data along with attendance to see which students persisted.
Although several of the students in the data sets are still actively enrolled in the adult education program, the approach of the staff of moving students who tested at an NRS Level of 3 to GED Ready® status showed success. Most students who scored at an NRS level 3 were able to go on to pass their GED Ready® and ultimately pass the GED® exam.
We still have some students in progress for this fiscal year.
