The Test of Essential Academic Skills (ATI TEAS), from ATI is a multiple-choice assessment measuring basic academic preparedness in reading, math, science, English and language usage. The objectives assessed in the test are those that allied health educators deem most relevant for measuring entry level skills and abilities of program applicants.
