We will take the first 20 students who register and pay for each testing session. Pre-registration is required. All testers are required to be enrolled before taking the test. Everyone must bring an Indiana ID or driver’s license, along with the $95 testing fee. Sixteen (16) and seventeen (17) year old learners: You can ONLY test if you are enrolled in our TASC classes and have already passed a pre-TASC test. When registering for the TASC test, you must provide an exit interview from the high school, the pre-TASC test scores signed by the TASC instructor, the ID listed above, and the $95 fee. These students must have the Director and Superintendent’s signatures.
