Hi everyone,

Hmmm...I still don't find the TABE to be a test of reading.  Even with
the thoughtful ideas on it presented by folks.  You need to be able to
read to do the test, true.  So the way I interpret that is to say that
one has enough skills to be able to tackle (or master) a
selected-response test (multiple choice test).  

What do others think?

Debbie,

Thanks for your forbearance.

Thanks also for your cut on the TABE.  Yes, I'd say a readng achievement
test, with an assumption that the person knows how to read the words
presented.

Andrea
