GED Classes Morgantown, West Virginia

This is a full listing of GED® (in West Virginia: TASC) prep locations and testing facilities in the Morgantown area.

West Virginia is using the TASC for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.

HSE testing gives people that couldn’t graduate high school one more shot at obtaining an equivalent diploma.

The TASC assesses basic knowledge at the level similar to what high school students must master upon graduation.

The TASC exam includes five tests in the following subjects: math, science, writing, reading, and social studies.

The TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) is, like the GED, NOT available online. Testing must be done at official HSE testing sites.

How to choose a good online GED-TASC course

Why the TASC?

West Virginia switched from the GED (General Education Development) to the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) for HSE (High School Equivalency) testing at the beginning of 2014. The GED is only available in a computer-based format and the price nearly doubled. Reasons enough for West Virginia to make the change. For eligibility requirements visit GED (TASC) in West Virginia and take also a look at this page that links to all GED preparatory locations and testing facilities in the US.

For who is the TASC exam?

The HSE program is developed to offer adults who did not complete high school another chance to obtain a comparable diploma. The diploma or certificate that will be awarded when you pass the West Virginia TASC/ GED test is recognized and accepted all across the nation as equivalent to a high school diploma by government organizations, recruiters, employers, and colleges.

The GED-TASC diploma

Thousands of students sit for the official GED tests each year after countless hours of study and preparation, in order to earn what is the equivalent of a high school diploma. The exam itself covers a broad range of subjects including math, science, reading, and writing. In order to score well on the exam, you first need to set up a training schedule in which you will go over all the relevant subjects, studying and covering all the topics covered. The TASC has five tests and is a credible alternative to the GED.

Preparation is crucial

Because the test is comprehensive, some planning and motivation will be required in order to prepare. One of the best ways to prepare without getting overwhelmed is to enroll in a TASC prep class. Keeping a positive attitude will help you get through the studying, the mundane repetition and it will also ensure you keep a decent retention rate, which will determine to a large part how well you score. If you don’t have time to enroll in a traditional TASC class, you can always sign up for a similar course online and get access to all the books you need.

Every student has areas of strength and weakness so find out which areas you need to work on and get your brain ready. You should have a set of goals when you sit for the exam and one of them should relate to the pursuit of a specific career. Websites that claim you can take the GED or TASC test (or get the HSE diploma) online are false. You must come to an official HSE test center in person to sit for the exam.

TASC-GED exam and your career

After the exam – Your next step here is to select a career path which blends well with your scores and pursuing it. Not all students know right off what they want to study or which career they want but it certainly makes it easier when you have your mind set on a specific field. If you choose the wrong career, you risk wasting years of your time and working in an industry that doesn’t satisfy your ambition.

So how do you choose a career? – Although some people appear to be fully motivated to go after one profession, most prefer to consult a third party when choosing a career field. The reason is that there are so many variants to consider and so many things affect success. Becoming a stockbroker might sound like a good idea but if all the factors required to succeed in the profession are absent and nobody wants to hire a stockbroker, then perhaps it wouldn’t be a good idea to focus on that.

There are a bunch of online tools you can use to find out which career paths go well with you, and the find a way to deduce which one’s best. Some applications ask you a bunch of questions which upon answering, are analyzed and used to calculate which jobs would fit you. Some apps are more accurate than others and you may be required to spend some money in order to get a more accurate analysis.

Of course, not everyone requires family sit-down or an online course to find out what job they want. If you know exactly what you want to pursue then that shouldn’t be a concern because the majority of universities accept HSE results as the equivalent of high school diplomas so you can have all the tools you need to launch your career.
