The TABE (Tests of Adult Basic Education) are tests designed to measure achievement of basic reading, language, math, and spelling skills commonly found in adult basic education. The tests are specifically designed for adults and use questions and illustrations that reflect reallife situations. The TABE is required for entry into all programs at DMTC. (See Application Procedures for more information about TABE requirements at DMTC.) The TABE is generally administered as a computer-based test, but is available in printed format.


The TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) is a dual purpose test required for entrance into many nursing programs. It tests basic knowledge in science, reading, English, and math. In addition, it tests an individual’s aptitude for the nursing profession.
