The TASC™ (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) is one of three available high school equivalency tests in the U.S.
The TASC exam offers adults who couldn’t complete high school the chance to get hold of a diploma or certificate that’s accepted just like a regular H.S. diploma across the U.S.
The TASC exam comes with five independent tests that measure proficiency and competencies at a level similar to the one expected from a person who completed four years of the high school curriculum.
The credential that’s awarded by states upon successful completion of the TASC test will definitely lead to better job opportunities and also allows for education in college.
The five TASC modular tests cover the subject fields of Math, Language Writing, Language Reading, Science, and Social Studies.
These five modules may be taken separately and are available in English and Spanish, though not at all test centers so get informed. The tests can be taken on a computer or on paper.
To help you get ahead fast with your TASC preparation, we’ve developed numerous TASC video lessons and practice tests. The contents of GED® and TASC are similar so check out the following:
The fields that are addressed in these TASC and GED Science practice tests are Life Science, Physical Science, and Earth Science.
Life Science (Biology-34%) is covering the sectors of Human Body and Health; the relationship between Life Functions and Energy Intake; the Functions, Organization, and Structure of Life; Evolution; and Genetics & Heredity.
Physical Science (33%) covers Physics and Chemistry. The addressed fields are Flow, Transformation, and Conservation of Energy; Work, Force, & Motion; Chemical Properties; Chemical and/or Nuclear Reactions in their relation to Living Systems and Organisms.
Earth and Space Science (33%) covers the academic sectors Earth, how its System Components interact; how Earth’s Systems interact with Living Objects; and the Structures and Organization of the Cosmos.
In the TASC Science test, you are assessed on their understanding and application of science passages and graphics. The TASC Science questions measure your skills regarding scientific investigation and study. The questions address:
Your comprehension of scientific concepts and how well you can interpret scientific passages and graphics. You must be able to use the scientific method to design research, understand and interpret data, and work with outcomes.
Taking a number of practice tests has proven to be an efficient educational method to get you all set for the real thing real fast!
You need to be able to understand and work with scientific information to draw conclusions based on evidence. You must understand how to apply formulas and scientific concepts to express information and apply theories in scientific settings. Additionally, you must know how to use statistics and the rules of probability in scientific contexts.
On the TASC Science test, you’ll also have to perform calculations. You can use the same scientific calculator as on the Math subtest.
So the TASC Science subtest, just like the GED Science test, covers these three main content fields: Life Science; Physical Science; Earth & Space Science. To be successful on the TASC Science test, you need to get at least a 500 score on a scale that runs from 300 to 800.
To pass the TASC Science module, you must be able to read some pretty complex scientific texts, to identify scientific details, to determine cause & effect, to understand scientific content, and to identify scientific evidence for support inferences and come up with conclusions.
Who developed these GED Science lessons? – These online TASC/GED Science classes are developed by Covcel GED Prep, a premium course that allowed us to publish more than 120 of their GED video lessons and GED practice tests.
