I am a teacher in a workplace development center. My students range in age from 16 to 24 years and are preparing to take the TASC Exam. Do you have any advice or suggestions about curricula that I could use to help them be successful on the exam? B. Milks
The Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) was selected to replace the GED. The test is designed to measure content and skills matched to contemporary high school curriculum. Having said that, it’s important to note that the majority of students I have worked with on the TASC have below grade level reading skills. My approach to that has been to use middle school materials to teach the content and then practice the test with TASC materials. The students are able to use the middle school materials to build understanding and gain confidence. We use TASC review and practice materials prepare them to sit for the exam based on the content they learned from readable activities.
My experience has been successful in terms of student participation and engagement. No exam results yet.
