HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY TESTING AT RVCC

 

On January 1, 2014, the tests changed for high school equivalency. If you did not pass all sections of the test, you must start over with a new test.  

New Jersey has approved several tests for people to earn a state-issued high school diploma. Each testing center determines which test(s) to offer in that center.  

This testing center offers the McGraw Hill CBT Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) in a paper-and-pencil version. Before calling for an appointment, make sure you are prepared to pass the tests. To review sample questions, visit http://www.tasctest.com/sample-questions.html .  

English and Spanish tests are now available.  

If you require information about testing accommodations, please go to www.tasctest.com/accommodations-for-special-needs-for-test-center-admins.html .  

  To be successful, you should:

1.  Prepare for the test  

  • You can find study guides at local bookstores and libraries
