This article includes an overview of GED or HiSET prep locations and testing sites in the Brockton area. In Massachusetts, there are two options for high school equivalency testing: the HiSET and GED exams.
Both tests can be taken online and at state-approved testing centers.
The assessments offer adults who did not complete high school the opportunity to get hold of an equivalent degree.
The GED® exam is entirely computerized and has four separate subject tests (modules) in
- Social Studies
You don’t need to take all four GED subtests in one session. You can take the four modules one at a time.
The HiSET® has five tests. The Language section has separate writing and reading tests. The HiSET modules can also be taken separately.
GED testing is done entirely on a computer, whereas the HiSET is offered both on a computer and on paper.
Both tests had to be taken at an official Massachusetts testing site. There was no online option available, but that has now changed with new options to take the tests online as well. Learn more below.

Introducing Online GED and HiSET Test-Taking Options
Until recently, it was not possible to take the HiSET or GED exam over the Internet. However, that has now changed with the arrival of options to take both exams in an online format as well.

GED and HiSET Testing
The HiSET and GED (General Education Development) exams are designed for adults who never completed high school and, when successfully taken, lead to the Massachusetts HSE diploma, which is equivalent to a common high school diploma. Visit GED and HiSET in Massachusetts for qualification requirements, and you may also want o to check out this page that has links to all GED prep programs in America.
The HiSET exam, like the GED, measures students’ skills and knowledge at a level comparable to that of graduating high school seniors, and if you manage to earn your high school equivalency (HSE) diploma, you will have a chance to get hold of a decently-paying job and work towards a finer future. Your personal income will grow, your family members will profit, and the economy will benefit as well.
Get your HSE degree and step on the path toward a better life. The High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) is available in both a paper-based and a computer-based version, whereas the GED is fully computerized.
The certificate that you acquire when you pass the Massachusetts HiSET or GED exam is generally accepted as comparable to a standard high school diploma by state and federal government organizations, employers, and colleges all over the United States.
Obtaining the HSE diploma will result in better job options, and it allows graduates to attend academic programs at institutions of higher education.
The HiSET exam includes five tests in Language Writing, Language Reading, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. The HiSET is offered in both paper and computer formats. The GED is only offered computer-based and comes with four independent subtests (modules).
