A part of the adult basic education (ABE) teaching/learning management system called CUBE (Continuity and Unity in Basic Education), this manual consists of a series of tests and guides for use in teaching English and vocabulary skills to ABE students. Among the tests provided in the manual are the Mott 1600 and Mott 1900 pretests and posttests, various Cambridge language tests, a vocabulary pretest, and base vocabulary mastery tests. Guidelines for using verbs, the verb "be", and possessives are set forth. Also provided are guide sheets for use with the program's two vocabulary texts. Topics addressed in the various tests include recognition of parts of speech, tense, subject-verb agreement, punctuation, capitalization, parts of a sentence, style and clarity, sentence structure, and prefixes and suffixes. (A project report describing the development of these materials as well as the other CUBE system instructional materials and manuals are available separately--see note.) (MN)
