TABE Pre-Test

The High School Equivalency Preparation course prepares students to take the Test Assessing Secondary Completion™, or TASC™. The TASC is a national high school equivalency assessment to help individuals address their need for advancement, resulting in a high school equivalency diploma.

Our instructors provide individualized and group instruction in math, science, social studies, reading and writing. Using a Predictor Test (TABE Pre-Test), we will work with you to assess your test readiness. There is no cost for the predictor test. The link for the predictor test will be provided within one to two days after registering. Once you complete the predictor test, we will contact you with your scores. In order to enroll for the preparation course, students must achieve an eighth grade level on the reading and math assessments.

Our next preparation program begins in early February.  When we call with your pre-test scores we will give you additional information on registering for the next course.  The cost for the preparation course is $65 and a valid Certificate of Residence is required prior to the start of the first class. Limited scholarships are available.

The book that will be used in the course is Kaplan’s “TASC Prep, Fifth Edition” and is required for the first class session. This course is taught remotely via Zoom. You will need your Hudson Valley username and password to access the course. This course requires significant work outside of classroom instruction. Many students will find they need to take this class for more than one semester before they are ready to sit for the exam.
