TASC – Is TASC the same as GED

Both the GED and TASC provide evidence needed to earn NYS High School Equivalency (HSE) credit AND yes, your old GED scores DO count! The GED was used by New York State to assess performance for HSE credit from 2003 – 2013. Beginning in 2014, TASC – Test Assessing Secondary Completion™ is now used instead. An applicant who passed some GED tests but, did not complete their GED may substitute those results for the corresponding TASC sub-tests.
