TASC in New York State

New York said goodbye to the GED to introduce the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion). The GED exam was becoming too pricey and is only offered on a computer. The TASC exam can be done both paper-based and on a computer. Check out also this page that has links to all GED-TASC programs in the U.S. More TASC information can be found here: TASC testing in New York.

In New York State, the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) replaced the GED exam for the state’s high school equivalency (HSE) testing. The TASC program is developed to help persons 19 years of age or older, who, for a number of reasons, never completed their regular high school education. The state picks up the tab for its residents’ HSE testing as one of only four states.

Around 40 million adults in America don’t have a high school diploma, and many of them hope that their ticket to a greater job or higher education is passing the GED (or in New York State the TASC) exam. Critics said the exam was too easy and could hardly be considered any longer the equivalent of a high school diploma.

The GED (originally created to help WWII veterans get good employment and into college) became the fallback opportunity for millions of high school drop-outs. New York State has replaced the GED with a new test, the TASC, in January 2014, and measuring high school equivalency has gained ground again.
