    TABE Reading Comprehension Test

    I have to take this test Aug. 24th. Is it difficult? Just common sense? Is there something I need to study?

    Thanks

    Not trying to be smart.........ss, but if you understand what you've read, it shouldn't be a problem. That said, don't race through it. Take the time to properly understand each question/situation posed. Good luck.

    TABE Reading
    The Reading portion tests students’ knowledge in the areas of vocabulary and reading comprehension. The areas that are tested in the Reading section are:
    # Interpreting Graphic Information – using charts, graphs, maps, reference materials and other data to extract information
    # Words in Context – using multiple meaning words correctly and determining the meaning of an unfamiliar word based on its usage in a sentence or passage
    # Recall Information – recalling basic details from a reading passage such as who, what, where, when, why and how
    # Construct Meaning – identifying main idea and supporting details, summarizing and paraphrasing a passage, identifying fact and opinion
    # Evaluate and Extend Meaning – identifying author’s purpose, making generalizations, predicting outcomes, identifying persuasive techniques used


    Here are some samples
