The Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™) was offered in the State of Illinois during 2016-2020. As of December 31, 2020, the TASC™ exam is no longer available in the State of Illinois.
If you are a TASC™ test taker who has completed and passed all sections of your TASC™ test, your scores remain valid. Please click here for information regarding ordering copies of your records.
If you are a TASC™ test taker who did not complete the TASC™ test by December 31, 2020, you would need to switch to an alternative exam (GED® or HiSET®). Scores from the TASC™ exam cannot be combined with scores from the GED® or HiSET® exam in Illinois. Therefore, candidates who did not complete their TASC™ exam would need to start over on the new exam of their choice (GED® or HiSET®).
If you have any questions regarding the discontinuation of the TASC™ test in Illinois, you may contact the Illinois Community College Board at ICCB.CookHSE@Illinois.gov or the TASC Test Help Desk at TASCTestHelpdesk@datarecognitioncorp.com.
