TASC: HOW WE’RE DIFFERENT FROM THE GED AND HiSET

As some states begin to replace the current GED® exam with the Test Assessing Secondary Completion™ (TASC™) for their high school equivalency exam, it’s important that policy makers and educators understand their options and the differences between the exams offered. In addition to some frequently asked questions and sample test items available on CTB.com/TASC, we wanted to give you clear cut comparisons between TASC, GED, and HiSET.

    As a GED, soon to be TASC, educator, I’d really like to know how to prepare my students for this test. I see above that current materials may be used. I need to know how important it is for me to purchase new materials with my limited budget. Obviously I need to do a good job prepping my students for this new test, but I don’t want to waste a lot of money on unneeded materials. And with the new test coming up and my organization having a cumbersome purchasing system, I need to know ASAP. Already I’ve seen two pricing/curriculum lists from McGraw-Hill that are very different and I have no idea which route to go or if I even need to buy anything at this point.

    Hopefully you got the correct list if you decided whether you needed anything at this point.

    As a private HS Equivalency test prep service provider and educator, I am appalled at the way HiSET, TASC, and GED are attempting to capture the market on test preparation. Please, don’t you make enough from government subsidies? Why be greedy? Isn’t that what happened to GEDTS? Greed! Now their rapidly losing market share. My projection is that numerous states will soon abandon GED,TASC, and GED and offer their own state-based high school equivalency exam. Capitalism and education don’t mix well; that’s why several countries are surpassing the US in terms of academics. These are countries we to refer to as third world nations. It is arrogance and corporate greed. So, please, GED,HiSET,and TASC, focus on providing the testing service and let us educators make a living by preparing our students for “your” test. Thanks!
