English as a Second Language (ESL)
The ESL program provides non-English-speaking students with
instruction in the English language from beginning through
advanced levels.
General Skills Brush Up and GED Prep
The regional ALC offers free instruction to prepare students for
the four GED exams. Assistance is provided in general skills that
are needed for college entrance exams. Similar instruction in
basic skills and GED preparation is offered in outreach centers in
Bonneville, Butte, Custer, Madison, and Fremont counties.
Pre-tests
New students entering the ABE program on campus or in the
outreach centers will take a pre-test to identify their
academic levels. There is no charge for this test. The test
assesses reading, language (English and writing), and math
skills. Each student will pre-test at entrance and post-test after
receiving a minimum of 60 hours of educational instruction. The
test shows results as well as areas of strengths and weaknesses.
The test takes between two & four hours. Please call the Adult
Learning Center to schedule a test at (208) 535-5386 or (208)
535-5326.
Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS)
Each ESL student will be pre-tested and placed into the correct
class or level according to the CASAS score. There is no charge
to take the CASAS exam. CASAS tests take approximately
two and one half hours to complete. Post- testing after every 70
course hours will monitor student progress. Please call the Adult
Learning Center to schedule a test at (208) 535-5326 or (208)
