The Reading GOALS test series for ABE/ASE is the newest reading series developed by CASAS. 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 are available. All six NRS ABE/ASE levels are covered in the series.
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. Because 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.
