This semester AEB will be using Canvas. Canvas is a cloud-based learning management system that enables participants to communicate with their instructor and classmates. Canvas also allows participants to access all course materials, attend lectures, and work in groups remotely. Classes will be held for three hours, two days per week.

Our Canvas resource center can help you whether you are new to Canvas or want to learn more.


Participants' skills will be assessed at the start and end of the course. 

Assessments are done to identify learning activities to help improve participants' skills, monitor progress, evaluate instruction, and review aggregate class outcomes. Please know that individual classroom assessment records are always kept confidential. 

A mandatory Pre TABE (Test for Adult Basic Education) skills assessment will be scheduled during the first day of classes.

Mandatory Pre TABE Skills Assessment Dates:

Math Refresher 1 - February 21, 2023

Effective Reading Skills 1 - April 11, 2023

A mandatory Post TABE skills assessment will be scheduled during the final session of each course.

Note: There will be an opportunity for participants to utilize 'office hours' on request for a one-on-one discussion with their instructors.
