Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment Systems (CASAS)
The Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment Systems (CASAS) is widely known for assessing adult basic reading, math, listening, writing, and speaking skills throughout the United States. The CASAS assessment system is used to help with adult literacy education, GED® preparation, or English as a Second Language so we can discover your proper skill placement level. The CASAS is required before anyone registers for classes.
About the CASAS Assessment:
- Reading Skills: This test measures your ability to find specific information in text. You will be asked to read a passage and then the computer will ask you questions to check your comprehension.
- Mathematical Skills: This test assesses your knowledge and skills on everything from basic math to calculus. As you answer questions correctly, the computer will give you harder questions. The computer will continue this until it can verify your current mathematical skill level.
If you do not acquire the scores needed for your program you will be advised to take Adult Basic Education classes where you will receive instruction in either math or reading or both and retake the CASAS test.
