About course

Summary:

Take A Breath, Everyone! When DRC launched the new TABE 11/12 in 2018, hysteria ensued. But take heart! This new CCRS-aligned assessment is good news for adult educators and students everywhere. 

Audience: Classroom instructors and Program Leaders

The course format is asynchronous in nature, meaning you complete the course at your own pace. You’ll be able to look back at previous modules any time you’d like, and of course you can pause and re-watch any portions of the videos as needed. The video must be watched in its entirety for the quiz to unlock.  Click "SAVE VIDEO PROGRESS" before exiting the video.

All materials referenced in this course are in the Course Materials folder.

Each module, you’ll view the module video and then complete a module quiz and extended response. Note that you also can’t move on until at least an 80% is achieved on the quiz, and note that your extended response will be reviewed by the facilitator. A facilitator dashboard keeps us updated on your progress, and if you’re taking the course as part of your agency’s professional development requirements, your agency will be informed of your status on a regular basis.

If you encounter an issue at any point, navigate to the Technical Support tab on the right-hand side of the screen within the course.

Great question! Susan Roberts of SCR Consulting has trained thousands of adult educators across the country through engaging in-person workshops and seminars on a variety of adult education practices. Using her knowledge of what works and what doesn’t, she utilizes research-based, practical approaches to introducing the same content effectively in an online environment. Rather than simply reading text on a screen, SCR Academy courses utilize module videos with Susan as your guide as you journey through the content. Project-based learning activities bring the concepts into the classroom with guidance from SCR Academy facilitators along the way.
Upon payment—either by your agency’s provided enrollment key or through credit card—you will be enrolled in the course. You’ll start by taking the pre-assessment—an informal quiz to test your knowledge about the course content. Then, the first module will unlock for you to begin work.
A new module will unlock each week, but only if you have completed the module before it. While the courses are self-paced, your agency and SCR Academy may have parameters in place for a completion timeline. Long periods of inactivity may result in your deactivation from the course.
A certificate of completion will generate when you have completed all course requirements. You must download and/or print the certificate as proof of your completion.
