GED and HiSET online
The HiSET and GED exams are now offered online as well. It used to be that, to earn the HSE diploma, your personal appearance at an official testing center was required, but that has changed.
The HiSET introduced the HiSET-at-Home option for qualifying students. To read more about this option, go to this post: The Online HiSET Test. GED hopefuls that want to take the exam online will first have to score in the “green zone” on the GED Ready® practice test. You can learn more here: The online proctored GED test.
Four GED subject tests
The GED exam consists of four individual subtests (modules) in these academic fields: Science, Literacy, Social Studies, and Math. Now you have the option to sit for one of the subtests (modules) when you’re ready to do so. The HiSET is also modular and scored in a different way than the GED.
HiSET and GED
So there are two alternatives available for California residents to acquire their high school equivalency (HSE) diploma. California approved the GED and HiSET assessments to be used for that purpose, and testing sites can decide for themselves which of the options (or both) they will use, so please contact a test center close to you for details.
The HiSET exam is available in both paper- and computer-based versions and is cheaper than the GED exam. The HiSET exam contains five testing fields: Language Writing, Language Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
