GED Classes Parkersburg, West Virginia

Posted here are all GED® (In West Virginia: TASC™) prep locations and testing sites in the Parkersburg area. West Virginia offers the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) for high school equivalency (HSE) testing.

HSE testing gives people who never graduated from high school an extra option to earn an equivalent degree.

The TASC exam has five subtests in the fields of English reading, English writing, math, science, and social studies.

West Virginia takes up the tab for its residents’ HSE testing. The TASC is priced more friendly than the GED and is available in both a paper-based and a computer-based version.

There is no TASC test available over the internet. Test-takers must come, in person, to one of West Virginia’s official TASC test sites.

TASC scoring

On the TASC exam (Test Assessing Secondary Completion), you need to have 500 (out of 800) points to reach the passing score on each test (so 2500 overall or more) and your essay must have at least a 2-points score. Averaging is not possible so you need to attain the passing score (500) on each of the five TASC subtests that may be taken one at a time.
