    High School Equivalency HSE  (formerly GED) is a course designed to prepare students to pass the examination for a national high school equivalency diploma. Instruction is based on the content of the test, which includes Math, Reading, Writing, Social Studies,
    and Science.

    The new HSE test series is replaced with the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC). Students receive a HSE not a GED® upon their successful completion of the TASC® exam.  This HSE test series for New York State began January 1, 2014. 
    Currently, for anyone who has taken the GED® test from January 1, 2002 to the present, those scores will  count for the HSE Exam. Every first time tester for the TASC exam must take all five (5) parts.  Visit Nassau County testing locations.
