Ability to Benefit Exam (ATB)
How to fulfill the ATB Requirement
If required, you must take and achieve the minimum cut scores established in Reading Comprehension, Sentence Skills, and Arithmetic by the first day of classes for a particular term to be certified for an award for that term.
Students who do not achieve the minimum cut scores on any part of the test upon initial testing are eligible to be retested after receiving an intervention. However, retesting must be completed within the same time period before the first day of classes. Students who test and meet the cut scores after the deadline will receive their TAP award for the following semester.
