Develop a Study Plan A study plan provides a roadmap to prepare for a TASC or TASC-ASL test.

NOTE: Beginning September 1, 2015 candidates are limited to five attempts to take a certification test. The five attempts include the first attempt to pass the examination and four retakes. The five attempts include any of the test approval methods (PACT, EPP, out of state, charter, and CBE). All attempts taken before September 1, 2015 count as one attempt. If a candidate chooses to register again for the same test, after completion of the fifth testing attempt, scores will not be counted towards certification and candidates will assume responsibility for test fees paid. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is implementing this change to Texas Education Code §21.048 in response to HB 2205, 84th Texas Legislature, 2015. For more information, please consult with your preparation program and see the FAQ document.
