The TABE CLAS-E Reading and Writing Administration offering is the first step in the process to become certified to administer both TABE CLAS-E tests. This certification allows practitioners to score the CLAS-E Reading and the CLAS-E Writing multiple choice questions. It does NOT allow practitioners to score the CLAS-E Expository Writing test component. To become certified, an open-book test administration assessment must be completed within two weeks. 


This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • ACLS funded practitioners who need to be trained as TABE CLAS-E test administrators for the Reading or Writing test.
  • Those trained can also score the CLAS-E Reading test but not the CLAS-E Writing test.
  • Novice Level.

This offering prepares practitioners to administer and score the CLASE-E Interview and Locator Test, administer and score the CLAS-E Reading Test, and administer the two CLAS-E Writing components.

To become certified to ADMINISTER AND SCORE the expository writing component of the CLAS-E Writing test, you MUST ATTEND this training AND the CLAS-E Writing Scoring offering (scheduled for 9/26/2016), AND complete the scoring activity.
