The TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) is a high school equivalency exam emerging as an alternative to the GED. Learn where you can take the exam and discover some resources that can help you prepare for it.

States Offering the TASC

At this point, eight states have adopted the TASC and replaced it with the GED exam: California, Indiana, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming. The exam will soon be administered in Illinois and South Carolina as well.

Finding a Testing Location

Many venues are available for taking the exam, including public schools and community colleges. If your state offers the TASC, the best way to locate the nearest testing center is to access the directory on the TASC's official website (tasctest.com) and use your address to figure out where you should be headed for the exam.

Requesting Accommodations

In accordance with the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, McGraw-Hill Education, the organization administering the exam, will work with anyone who has special needs and/or disabilities in order to ensure the test is properly administered. Documents for requesting special accommodations are available on the TASC website if needed. These must be submitted to the test coordinator at your nearby testing center and approved by an administrator before you can sign up for special testing accommodations at your location of choice.

TASC Test Info

Five different subjects are covered on the TASC: Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Each subject exam has unique formatting and contains a variety of question styles, from multiple choice to constructed response. On top of that, the testing methods might differ by location; some test sites administer a computer-based exam, while others stick to a written version. There are also locations offering both versions of the test.
