In this experiment, adult learners at an alternative education program were asked to complete a timed multiplication drill and a survey identifying their self-efficacy prior to taking the TABE Mathematics. Upon completion of the three instruments, an analysis was performed to identify the nature of any existing correlations between TABE scores and both the multiplication drill scores and self-efficacy survey scores, respectively. The analysis revealed that a significant positive correlation existed between the TABE and the multiplication drill, and that a significant positive correlation existed between the TABE and the self-efficacy survey.
