The College Basic Academic Subjects Examination (CBASE) is a test of general education knowledge that was developed by the Assessment Resource Center at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Consisting of five parts, including a writing component, the CBASE assesses knowledge in four subject areas: language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Concurrently, the exam also measures three cross-disciplinary competencies: interpretive reasoning, strategic reasoning, and adaptive reasoning. Proficiencies in these knowledge and skill areas are usually attained by completing a curriculum of general academic studies during the first two years of college.
