February 7, 2022 From the memo sent by NYSED AEPP "This memo is intended to provide guidance to all AEPP funded programs as we transition to the GED test leading to a New York State High School Equivalency Diploma. All funded programs include WIOA Areas 1, 2, 3, and 4, WEP, EPE, and ALE funding. Please also note this memo pertains to the TASC Readiness and GED Ready test, all other procedures for transitioning from the TASC to the GED are communicated through the High School Equivalency Department of NYSED. The best and most current source of information can be found on their communication website: http://www.acces.nysed.gov/hse/high-school-equivalency-hse
All AEPP funded programs must purchase and begin using the GED Ready Practice Test as soon as possible for students receiving services from AEPP funded programs. The GED Ready Practice Test is required before a student is referred to sit for the GED Test. The tests are purchased directly from GEDTS. Those programs that have budgeted for the purchase of the TASC Readiness Test are not required to submit any amendments to their budget. The same allocation used for the TASC Readiness Test may now be used to purchase the GED Ready Practice Test."
