High School Equivalency (HSE)

New York State selected the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™) to replace the General Educational Development (GED®) as the primary pathway to a New York State High School Equivalency Diploma.


The TASC™ is a secure, reliable and valid instrument that is used to verify that examinees have knowledge in core content areas equivalent to that of graduating high school seniors. There are five tests in the TASC™ test Battery: Reading; Writing; Social Studies; Science; and Mathematics.
