Indiana Selects New High School Equivalency Credential Exam
Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Commissioner Scott B. Sanders announced recently the intention to execute a contract with CTB/McGraw-Hill to provide a new high school equivalency assessment that will replace the General Educational Development (GED) test currently in use. The new assessment will ensure Indiana offers a high school equivalency test that matches employer demand and is both affordable and accessible. The new test, which all Indiana providers will begin utilizing in 2014, is called the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC). The TASC will be aligned to College and Career Readiness Standards over the next few years and will gradually increase in rigor to better meet industry demand. In order to maintain accessiblity, the new exam will continue to be offered in both paper and computer-based formats.
