TASC/GED Updates for New York State

The New York State Board of Education decided on Wednesday that test takers who passed sub-tests of the 2002-2013 GED® can keep those scores and have them count towards the new TASC throughout 2014 and 2015. The Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC), created by CTB/McGraw Hill, will replace the GED® as the Common Core-aligned high school equivalency assessment in New York State. This is wonderful news for students who have worked hard to complete certain portions of the GED®, but were unable to complete the full series before the January 2014 deadline.

Facts about the TASC:

  • It can be completed online or pencil/paper
  • Base price of $52 (not including stated-imposed testing fees)
  • Takers receive 2 free re-tests
  • Tests in Reading/Language Arts, Writing, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies
  • Tests in both English and Spanish
