TASC Test Design
Data Recognition Corporation | CTB created TASC test. We are experts at developing assessments of school performance from elementary school through adult education. Our assessments range from TerraNova®, to end-of-year state assessments, to high stakes Common Core assessments and of course, the Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE®).
We have carefully constructed all questions in TASC test working with experienced adult education providers as well as secondary school teachers. People who specialize in making sure test questions work review every TASC test question multiple times. All questions are pretested, standardized and normed before becoming part of the official TASC test. TASC test standardization uses a random sample of both graduating high school seniors and advanced Adult Basic Education students across the country.
To pass TASC test, examinees must demonstrate a level of achievement that meets or surpasses approximately 40 percent of the nation’s graduating high school seniors. Approximately 60 percent of high school seniors would be expected to pass all five TASC test subject area tests.
