HSEA Questions and Answers
The TASC Test, formerly known as the GED, is a computerized assessment aligned with the Common Core Curriculum Standards. It determines if an examinee has the skills expected of a student graduating from high school. It qualifies an examinee for a High School Diploma issued by The State of New Jersey Department of Education.
The five major subjects are:
- Social Studies
- Examinees must be residents of New Jersey.
- Examinees must be 16 years or older and not enrolled in an accredited high school.
- A Consent Form must be signed by a parent/legal guardian for anyone under 18 years of age.

- Birth date
- Social security/tax identification number

The fee for all five subtests is $106.00 which must be submitted in the form of a money order payable to Ocean County College.
