MOLearns Application Process:
After you complete your application you will receive an email from an online instructor with information on how to set up your pre-testing. MOLearns requires all students to take TABE pre-tests prior to starting. Testing will take a total of about 5-6 hours, and there are a couple of different ways to get this done. Testing may be completed in an approved AEL classroom. If you are unable to go to a classroom to test, we do have limited virtual testing online available upon request. You will need to attend two test sessions online and they will be around 2-3 hours in length.
The most efficient way to join MOLearns is to test in a classroom near you. You will physically go to a classroom to test. Once you have taken the TABE locator as well as a full length test in reading, math, and language, you will be able to start the MOLearns online orientation. Most classrooms are currently doing in-person testing. You must make an appointment to test in the classroom. No walk-in testing is available at this time.
All tests must be proctored (monitored) by an AEL teacher in order to be valid.
Once your placement tests are completed, your online teacher will email you a username and password so you can begin studying for your high school equivalence (HSE) test! You will be required to complete a short online orientation.
