Assessments

Adult educators play a critical role in the successful implementation of DWD’s vision for adult education. They deliver foundational skills development to adults and out-of-school youth for the purposes of employment, reemployment, or enhanced employment.  See the Teacher’s Manual for more information on DWD’s vision, guidance on instructional delivery, and program components.
In addition to instruction, educators are responsible for assessing students to ensure they are gaining foundational skills in math, reading, and language.  The Department of Workforce Development has procured Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE)/ TABE Complete Language Assessment System-English (TABE CLAS-E) to measure educational and language attainment.  Other potential assessments that educators may administer include the Indiana Career Explorer (ICE), a career interest, aptitude, and values inventory; and WorkKeys, which measures workplace skills.  Guidance on all of these assessments is provided below.
