The TASC exam

In 2014, the state stopped using the GED® for its HSE program and switched to the TASC exam. The West Virginia Department of Education decided for CTB/McGraw Hill’s TASC exam as the GED became too expensive. Go to GED (TASC) testing in West Virginia for qualification requirements. You can also check out this page that contains links to all GED-TASC prep sites in the US.

CTB/McGraw-Hill is one of America’s leading educational assessment organization, and they have developed the TASC exam to measure applicant’s high school equivalency readiness. Several states have replaced the expensive and only computer-based available new version of the GED exam by the TASC exam.

West Virginia selected the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) examination as the state’s official high school equivalency testing alternative. In West Virginia, around 6,000 applicants are looking to obtain their high school equivalency credential every year. This is just one step in the ongoing movement by states all across America to find alternatives of high-quality that are cheaper and more accessible than the GED exam for the more than 40 million adults who don’t have a high school diploma or equivalency.

CTB/McGraw-Hill representatives are proud that several states, including West Virginia, have opted for the TASC program to serve tens of thousands high school equivalency applicants, of whom many will immensely benefit from this affordable alternative to the GED exam.

Post-secondary degrees are more and more a prerequisite for well-paying jobs, so the accessibility of programs like the TASC is crucial to get career opportunities, and the TASC exam allows for access to institutions of higher learning. The TASC program is built from the ground up and is brought in line with the learning standards as identified by the Common Core.
