Taking the New TASC™ Test
The TASC™ test is a High School Equivalency (HSE) national examination developed by CTB/ McGraw Hill. The test is available to adults who did not graduate from high school or whose diplomas may not be recognized by New York State. In New York State, the TASC™ is offered in English and Spanish.
When candidates pass the TASC™ Test in Spanish, they receive a high school equivalency diploma with a designation of Spanish.
There are five tests in the TASC™ Test Battery: Language Arts – Writing; Social Studies; Science; Language Arts – Reading; and Mathematics. The tests take more than seven hours to complete and include a direct writing assessment. To ensure that the content and skills measured by the tests remain closely matched to contemporary high school curriculum, the tests undergo regular review.
The TASC™ Tests cover the same subjects that people study in high school. Candidates are not required to know all of the information that is usually taught in high school, however, across the five tests, candidates are tested on their ability to read and process information, solve problems, and communicate effectively.
