These free TASC™ Social Studies practice tests will help you get optimally prepared for the TASC Social Studies test in a relatively short period of time.
The contents of the TASC exam and the GED® test are similar, so using these free sample questions for the GED Science subtest is also great for the TASC Science test.
TASC testing includes taking 5 individual subtests (modules) that cover Social Studies, Language Writing, Language Reading, Science, and Mathematics.
The five TASC tests measure knowledge at a level comparable to the knowledge level of students after four years of education in high school.
The TASC exam is for individuals who never completed their high school curriculum.
The certificate or diploma (depending on your state) that’s awarded after successful completion, will lead to better job options and qualifies you for college.
The five TASC modules don’t need to be taken in one session. You can take them one subtest at a time.
The tests are offered in English and Spanish, though not at all test centers, so get well-informed.
The tests are available in both computer-based and paper-and-pencil formats (except in New Jersey where only computer-based testing is available).
Check out these TASC Social Studies practice tests and more information about TASC testing can be found here.
Taking multiple practice tests will help you identify your weak and strong knowledge fields so you can dedicate your time to studying for those areas that you need to focus on most.
All five TASC modules are scored on a 300 – 800 scale and the minimally required score on each module is 500. Averaging across subject tests is not possible.
So your total score cannot be under 2500 and you’ll also have to produce a TASC essay that must produce at least a score of 2.
