(Test Assessing Basic Education) is a diagnostic test used to determine a person’s skill levels and aptitudes. Many companies use it in hiring, promotions, or for selecting employees for training programs for skilled positions. The TABE test is also used by public service agencies who are guiding people into adult education programs, such as getting a high school equivalency (HSE), going to trade school, etc.
TABE tests skills and aptitudes in reading, math, and English, as you’ll apply them in the workforce or classroom. Although there’s -no such thing as passing or failing the TABE test, your score can determine your eligibility for many programs that can have a positive effect on your life situation. It’s important to be prepared for the test.

(Test Assessing Secondary Completion), was introduced to New York State in 2014 as an updated alternative to other high school equivalency tests, such as the GED. The TASC recognizes that educational standards and methods have changed over the years, and that a high school equivalency exam should be an assessment of the same challenges faced by today's graduating seniors. The TASC is made up of five subtests: Reading, Writing, Social Studies, Science and Mathematics; each subtest requires a score of 500 or greater for successful completion.
The TASC is available to students as young as 16 years who have officially exited high school and are looking to achieve their high school equivalency diploma. Buffalo EOC students and community members (those not enrolled as EOC students) are free to sign up for the TASC in our testing center.
