Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE)   TABE is used primarily for placement in the Basic Skills Education Program (BSEP) classes, and is also required for some service schools. The test measures competencies in reading, mathematics and language.  Soldiers who wish to use Tuition Assistance who have a GT score of less than 100 may be asked to take the TABE to provide the counselor with a better idea of the Soldier's preparedness to be successful in College Courses.

Functional Academic Skills Testing (FAST)/Basic Skills Education Program (BSEP)   The FAST program consists of two phases. The first phase is open entry, meaning that a Soldier can enter the program any day Monday-Friday and attend from 0900-1230 or from 1300-1630. Because mission is first, this open entry program works well for both the Soldier and the unit. The second phase of the program, called GT Prep, is a two-week all day training from 0900-1200 and 1300-1600. Upon completion of GT Prep, the Soldier should be ready for the Armed Forces Classification Test (AFCT)
