Is the TASC test a valid high school equivalency exam? Yes, it is! Just like the GED® test or HiSet®, the TASC test scores are now acknowledged on a national level and recognized as “portable credentials.”
CTB designed the TASC test after seeing a need for an affordable test that aligns to current educational standards. The previous GED test covered outdated content that didn’t align with the College and Career Readiness Standards. The TASC test gradually transitions examinees to the new national standards, focusing on preparing adults for careers or higher education rather than requiring them to memorize facts to pass a test.
Thus, passing the TASC test shows students have the same basic knowledge and skills as current high school graduates and are college and career ready.
