AS OF JANUARY 1st, New York State is no longer using the GED as the assessment for a High School Equivalency Diploma.  The former GED published (ACE) sold the publishing rights to Pearson-Vue.  NYS decided not to use Pearson-Vue as the assessment vendor.

CTB/McGraw-Hill has created the TASC (Tests Assessing Secondary Completion) and NYS has adopted the TASC as the formal assessment determining High School Equivalency.
