TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION FOR STUDENT SUCCESS IN BASIC EDUCATION

M. Mahle

New York City Department of Education, Office of Adult and Continuing Education (UNITED STATES)
The Test for Adult Basic Education (TABE) is employed by adult education programs and employers to determine the level of reading comprehension and math of adult learners. This test determines the level of basic education as compared to high school level. Many adult education programs use the results of this test to place students into remedial classes to improve their level of basic education in the areas of math, language and reading comprehension. We offer a preparatory classes that prepare students to achieve high scores in the TABE test for those interested in applying to adult programs that use this test as an admission criteria. The curriculum for these preparatory classes was revised to incorporate technology that included the use of interactive websites, PowerPoint presentations, SmartBoards, IClickers and a course management system (Blackboard). Student success was measured by comparing the results of a pretest, an intermediate test administered midway through the class, and a posttest.

The use of technology improved teaching and learning and has significantly improved student outcomes as measured by their success in achieving the required scores in the TABE test as compared to the prior year’s results.
