TASC Score Report

Everything you need to know!

The highest possible score in each subtest is 800, plus a score of 8 for the Writing essay. The passing score for each of these subtests is 500 and 2 for the essay. The cumulative TASC passing score is 2500 but you must still earn a passing score in every subtest to pass the TASC.

If you earn an especially high score in Mathematics, Reading, or Writing, you will receive a Distinguished Achievement notation for that score. The Distinguished Achievement score is 580 for reading and 560 for Mathematics and Writing.

You can retake a TASC subtest as many times as needed until you pass and you only need to retake those subtests that you failed rather than the entire TASC test. Similarly, if you do not pass in a particular area of the subtest, you need to retake only that area.

"The fundamentals I learned from Dr. Donnelly were very helpful. I received the one-on-one attention that I did not receive in the Kaplan prep test. I did not feel embarrassed to ask basic questions. Dr. Donnelly was very patient with explaining concepts in detail until I understood. Additionally, he was always available via email or phone."

"Dr. Donnelly is a wonderful teacher. He is quick to pinpoint weaknesses and, in many cases, turn them into strengths. He always has a structured lesson plan and pertinent homework assignments and puts aside time in the lesson to go over "trouble problems" from the previous lesson. I highly recommend taking a prep course with him. His patience, humor, and kindheartedness makes an otherwise uncomfortable standardized test almost enjoyable."

"Dr. Donnelly's rates are very reasonable, his location convenient and he was able to accommodate my varied schedule. After a handful of sessions in which he patiently worked with me to target the specific areas I could improve in given the limited time, I was able to reach the needed score to start college in September, thanks to Dr. Donnelly."

"My daughter has worked with Dr Donnelly for the last three months and it has been wonderful. Dr. Donnelly has been able to focus on her weaknesses and provide enormous insight. In addition, his advice with regards to strategy for the test has been invaluable. He is able to engage students and provide support well beyond other tutoring services. He is sincerely committed to student success and offers a personalized service with sound methodology. Within 3 months her scores improved significantly. In addition to all his talents ... he is just one of those really smart people that can teach."

"Dr. Donnelly's private tutoring stands apart from other mainstream/commercial review programs because he isolates an individual's weaknesses and tailors a successful review and test-taking strategy that conforms to an individual's needs -- rather than those of the masses. Dr. Donnelly was able to quickly understand and dissect my thought process in order to help me break old habits and establish stronger test-taking skills so I could get that higher score I wanted."

His schedule is flexible and he is willing to work with you to give you what you need. My score went up dramatically and I would recommend Tutors of Oxford to anyone."

"Dr. Donnelly is patient and supportive and is clear when explaining questions that were challenging to me. He also urged me to work out questions on my own, which was extremely helpful. He created an atmosphere in which I looked forward to the challenge of each section on the practice tests, and I definitely felt more confident taking the test. If I need to prepare for another standardized test, I will definitely contact Dr. Donnelly."
