TASC Test Details

The TASC Test Assessing Secondary Completion™ is a secure, reliable, and valid assessment used to assess the achievement of examinees on core content areas taught and assessed as part of typical national high school curricula.

The TASC Test measures high school equivalency and college and career readiness in five subject areas: Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Data Recognition Corporation worked with experienced adult education providers and secondary school teachers to support our standardized and rigorous TASC Test item development process.

DRC has experienced content experts and research scientists who worked together to develop valid and reliable test questions with well-documented measurement properties; each question was examined in multiple item reviews. All test questions were field tested and item analyses were conducted to confirm the questions’ measurement properties before becoming part of the operational TASC Test. Field test examinees included a diverse sample of high school seniors and Adult Basic Education students from across the country. To pass the TASC Test, examinees must demonstrate a level of achievement similar to that of typical high school seniors.
