The Indiana High School Equivalency Diploma
Indiana offers adults the opportunity to earn a state accredited High School Equivalency Diploma by successfully passing the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) Exam. The TASC exam is similar to the GED exam in that applicants must meet a minimum score on five different subject sections including Math, Language Arts, Reading, Science, and Social Studies.
