  • When scheduling to take the TASC test, you will need to decide whether to take the test on a computer or on paper.
  • One big advantage of computer-based testing (CBT) is that you do not need to wait for the time to expire for each subtest before moving on to the next subtest.
  • Scoring of most of the CBT exam is faster. Except for the Essay, you can view your unofficial CBT test scores on the DRC portal within one or two days. However, the processing and mailing of your diploma or transcript takes approximately 8-10 weeks after testing has occurred.
