Test Retake Policy

If you do not pass a TASC or TASC-ASL test, you can retake it at any future test administration.

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 currently 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) implemented this change to Texas Education Code §21.048 in response to HB 2205, 84th Texas Legislature, 2015.

If you are affiliated with an EPP, check with your program to see if you need approval to retest. Contact them for further information.

Test takers are required to pay the test fee when registering to retake a test.

ETS and TEA reserve the right to cancel scores if the test retake policy is violated for any reason.
