GOALS Reading

CASAS is developing a new ABE/ASE reading test series for release in 2017 or later. Test content is aligned with College and Career Readiness (CCR) Standards for Adult Education. Comprehension questions draw on higher order reading skills, including citing evidence from complex texts. New question types include Sentence Completion and an “Item Families” approach. Both computer-based and paper-based administration will be available. NRS ABE/ASE levels will be covered in four test levels.

Use these sample test items to:

  • familiarize students with CASAS items
  • give students practice in taking a CASAS test
  • make future testing go more smoothly
  • help reduce student test-taking anxiety

These items are samples to familiarize students with CASAS test formats. Since they are not actual tests, they are not predictors of student performance, and are not valid for level placement, assessment, or for reporting standardized scores.
