How Do I Pass the TASC Test?

Passing the TASC test guarantees your High School Equivalency (HSE) Certification. The TASC test is comprised of five subtests: Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Each of these tests has its own question types, test structure, and testing time. To pass the TASC test and receive your HSE certificate, you must achieve a passing grade on each of the five subtests. To learn more about the TASC subtests and what each test entails, visit our TASC Test page.

Passing Standards

A minimum score of 500 is needed for the Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies subtests. The Writing subtest requires both a minimum score of 500 on the multiple-choice section of the test as well as a minimum of 2 out of 8 on the essay prompt.

Retesting Policy

If you do not receive a passing score on one or more of the TASC subtests, you are not required to retake the TASC test in its entirety. TASC tests are given throughout the calendar year, allowing you to sign up for an additional testing time for just the subjects that require improved scores. For more information about the testing process and testing locations, visit our TASC Test FAQs page.
