Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™)

 On January 1, 2014 New York introduced a NEW HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY TEST, the TASC.

New York State has selected a new high school equivalency test called the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™) to replace the General Educational Development (GED®) as the primary pathway to a New York State High School Equivalency Diploma effective January 2, 2014. The TASC™ is a secure, reliable and valid instrument that is used to verify that examinees have knowledge in core content areas equivalent to that of graduating high school seniors.
