Applied Academics for Adult Education
Applied Academics for Adult Education is designed to provide instruction to students who need to upgrade basic skills in reading, language arts, mathematics, and other related instructional areas (for example, science and social studies), as appropriate. Also included are study and reference skills. Using results from the Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE), instructors prepare individual prescriptive lessons for the student whose scores do not meet the state-mandated basic skill exit level requirements for the training program which he/she has chosen. Meeting the TABE exit scores for each program is a requirement in order for the student to obtain a certificate from the training program, if the program length is 450 hours or more. The length of the class varies according to the student’s academic needs.
What are the prerequisites for this program? All students must take the TABE placement test (unless they meet exemption criteria) from which prescriptive lessons are written. In addition, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn, along with a good attendance record, are essential for success in the Applied Academics for Adult Education Lab.
What service will I receive from this instruction? Students will receive flexible, top-quality instruction that will help them to meet basic skill exit requirements for their technical program. Upon program completion, both academic and technical, they will be issued a certificate from their technical program.
When may I enroll in Applied Academics for Adult Education ? In most cases, academic skills instruction may occur prior to or concurrent with enrollment in the technical program. See a program counselor for details.
When is the program offered? Monday – Friday 8:00 am – 2:30 pm
