Data Recognition Corporation CTB has been helping educators improve achievement and meet state and federal requirements since 1926. We are the trusted testing and educational research partner for national, state and provincial education departments, districts, schools, and dioceses. Our work has closely followed the progress of the Common Core State Standards consortia, focusing on Academic English at all grade levels and in all key domains, especially Science, Technology, English and Mathematics to improve the rankings of U.S. students.
TASC test is aligned with their performance standards and test items. CTB McGraw-Hill has also developed sample test items ready to use to help prepare students for the TASC test.
These sample items will enable you to start working with students to help them understand how different TASC test is from previous high school equivalency tests and how much preparation practice will be required. It is part of learning how to comprehend basic ideas, write about the supporting principles, discuss the subjects they study in more depth, and justify their conclusions using academic English language to write their answers. The sample items will help you get ahead of the curve of the rapidly approaching 2014-2015 school year, when current state tests will be replaced by TASC test.
