The Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) replaced the GED test in New York State in 2014. The TASC is a state-of-the-art, national high school equivalency (HSE) assessment in five subject areas, including Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.

In partnership with the NYS Education Department (NYSED), Queens Library’s Adult Learner Program administers ONLY the computer-based version of TASC at the following five locations:

  • Central Library
  • Flushing Adult Learning Center
  • Long Island City Adult Learning Center
  • Peninsula Adult Learning Center
  • Rochdale Village Adult Learning Center
