Purpose: Section 944.801, (3), (f), F.S., this sheet summarizes the average change in literacy levels of CE Students during FY 2012-13 (July 2012 – June 2013).
Methodology: TABE tests administered to students during FY 2012-13 were scored using TestMate and the Advanced Module of the TestMate System (test scoring and reporting system). Inmate names and DC numbers were used to track those who had both pretest and posttest scores during this period. This summary includes all inmate students who during this period had at least one matched set of scores (pretest and posttest scores) in at least one subject area. A total of 4,951 students had matched scores for all three of the subject areas (Total Battery) of Reading, Language, and Total Mathematics. The total sets of matched scores for each subject area were: (a) 5,591 for Reading, (b) 5,677 for Language, and (c) 6,154 for Total Mathematics.
Results: The following charts show the average gains made in each subject in terms of normal curve equivalents (NCE), scale scores, and grade equivalents (GE), respectively. To be included, students had to have both a pretest and posttest. Gain was made in all three subject areas and for the total battery. For an average of three months of instruction, the overall (total battery) gain was two points for the NCE scores and on the average there was a 12-point increase in scale scores. This translates into five months gain (.5) in GE scores.

|Unduplicated Count of Inmate Participation in Correctional Basic Education in FY 2012-13|
* "Enrollments" includes inmates enrolled as of 7/1/12 and new enrollments through 6/30/13.
** "Completions" are from 7/1/12 through 6/30/13.
*** Inmates who participated in Mandatory Literacy, Adult Basic Education, GED and Vocational courses get counted for participation in all four programs.
"Number of Courses" and "Number of Inmates" are different for vocational counts since it is possible for a given inmate to be involved in more than one course in this program year.
For greater detail, Adult Basic Education (course "9900004") is shown in a separate column from the GED (course "9900026").
"Completions" are defined as a CMP, ATT or CXS code on the DC32 screen for MLP and ABE participants, a GED certificate for course "9900026" participants, and a vocational certificate for vocational program participants.
1ITA=Inmate Teaching Assistant Program.
Note that none of the counts in the above tables include program participation or certificates earned at private facilities. Inmates at the seven major private
facilities earned 489 GEDs and 1,125 vocational certificates in FY 2012-13.
