How long do you need to get your GED?

The TASC exam

West Virginia 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.

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

TASC scoring

On the TASC exam, you need to score at least 500 out of 800 points for each of the five subtests (so minimally 2500 overall), and a 2-score or higher for your essay.

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 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.
