What is the TASC exam?

New York said goodbye to the GED for the purpose of high school equivalency testing in early 2014 and replaced it with the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion). The GED exam became too expensive and is only offered in a computer-based format. The TASC offers both paper-based and computer-based testing options. For eligibility details go to TASC in New York and check out also this link to all GED programs in the U.S.

The HSE  program is developed to assist adults who never got their high school diploma in their efforts to obtain a comparable diploma. The certificate that is awarded after completing the New York TASC test is all across the country recognized as an equivalency to a regular high school diploma by state and federal agencies, employers and universities.

Is the TASC exam free?

Yes. The state of New York offers the High School Equivalency Exam (now the TASC) at no cost to state residents. There are various options available at no cost for adults wishing to develop or refresh their knowledge and skills required for successfully completing the New York State High School Equivalency exam, and receive their HSE diploma.

**) The American Civic Association

The American Civic Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping immigrants and refugees with their efforts to start a new life in the Binghamton community while promoting the preservation of their cultural heritage and ethnic diversity. In cooperation with Binghamton Adult Education, the American Civic Association presents ‘The World Of Work’, an educational program that aims to prepare refugees and ESL (English as a Second Language) students for employment opportunities in the USA.

The American Civic Association also offers free Adult Night TASC classes together with a Youth Study Skills Program for young individuals aged 5 to 14. You can turn Tuesday and Thursday nights into a great all-family learning experience: adult applicants follow GED or ESL (English as a Second Language) classes and in case you have children in school age, you can bring them along and they will be able to work with instructors and volunteers.

This way they can learn all the skills required to be successful at school. While you attend GED classes to get all set for the new TASC exam, will your children be able to complete their homework in small study groups and later they will be reviewing their accomplishments together with you by the end of class. For details please call the ACA at 607-763-4863.
