GED Classes New City, New York

This article contains an overview of TASC (formerly GED®) prep facilities in New City and surroundings. New York State uses the TASC for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.

The TASC measures knowledge at that level that’s similar to what may be expected of graduating high school students.

The diploma that you’ll receive after passing the exam is all over America accepted as equivalent to a high school diploma.

The TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) has five testing fields: Reading, Writing, Social Studies, Math, and Science.

The exam can be taken on paper or in a computer-based format. There is no online TASC or GED testing option.

In New York Stata, there is no cost for HSE testing which is only available for state residents.

Five TASC Testing Fields

New York State decided to exchange the GED exam with the TASC exam for the purpose of HSE (High School Equivalency) testing. The TASC contains five subject tests in the academic areas of Math, Writing, Reading, Science, and Social studies. To see if you are eligible for the TASC program, check out GED (TASC) in New York.

The most recent edition of the GED exam is only offered on a computer and the price almost doubled. New York State paid for the HSE exam so it opted for the cheaper TASC which is offered both on paper and on a computer. New York is one of only four states that offers its residents free HSE testing.

Online HSE testing is NOT possible. You must show up at an official testing center in person. To make sure the knowledge and skills assessed by the TASC exam will continue to match contemporary high school and industry standards, the exam undergoes regular updates. Holding the degree will bring better employment possibilities, and also allows for higher education.
