Real Talk: Hayley Moore’s TASC Test Story

Behind every TASC Test Assessing Secondary Completion™ test taker’s high school equivalency (HSE) is a story of determination and hard work. For Hayley Moore, 18, the TASC test allowed her to graduate on time and move one step closer to achieving her goals of attending college and becoming a registered nurse. 

Now a TASC test success story, we’re excited to share Hayley’s story with you today.

  1. Why did you choose the TASC test?

I struggled with homeschool and needed help. The Adult Basic Education center at the Brownsburg Public Library in Brownsburg, Indiana helped. With this Adult Basic Education program, I was able to [pass the TASC test] and graduate on time.

  1. What made you decide to earn your high school equivalency? What was your motivation?

My main purpose was to not look back and think I didn't try. I have big dreams and getting my HSE was the first step in [achieving] those dreams.

  1. How did you prepare for the TASC test? How did the TASC test study materials help you prepare?

I prepared for the TASC test through the classes the Adult Basic Education program offered and studying a lot. The classes helped me prepare for [the TASC test]. The Kaplan TASC 2015-2016 Strategies, Practice, and Review book really helped, too. I would also recommend the Khan Academy on YouTube. This material really helped me in my studies.

I also took the TASC Readiness Assessment to prepare for the TASC test.

  1. What challenges did you face throughout the study and preparation process? How did you overcome them?

I think the fear of not passing the TASC test was my biggest hurdle to get over. I overcame this with the help of my friends and family; they continued to encourage me through all of my studies.

  1. What goals and ambitions do you have for your future?

I just got accepted into Indiana Wesleyan University, which was a goal of mine. I dream of being an RN at Riley Hospital.

  1. What advice or tips do you have for future TASC test takers and anyone looking to earn their high school equivalency?

My advice for anyone preparing for and taking the TASC test is to not give up and to keep going when you feel like it's impossible. You can do this. The feeling of [achieving your HSE] is worth it all.

I'd also like to thank the Adult Basic Education program at the Brownsburg Public Library for never giving up on me.
