TASC Registration Account
Before sitting for the TASC exam, an online account must be created. This account is where students will receive their unofficial test scores. If someone has approved testing accomodations, this online account will be used to upload the accomodations.
Students with an IEP or 504 Plan with testing accommodations will be able to use them when taking the TASC subtests. Data Recognition Corporation is the company that produces the tests and approves testing accommodations. More information on testing accommodations can be found through the NYSED website and scrolling to the bottom of the page.
