This page shows all GED and HiSET prep classes and testing centers in the Hammond area. Louisiana uses both exams for the purpose of High School Equivalency testing.
The HiSET and GED exams offer adults who don’t hold a high school diploma the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
Like the GED® exam, the HiSET® exam measures knowledge at a level that is comparable to that of high school students upon graduation.
The HiSET (short for High School Equivalency Test) contains five subtests in
- Language Reading
- Language Writing
- Social Studies
GED (General Education Development) testing involves four sub-exams as the sections of reading and writing were melted into one Language exam.
HiSET testing is possible both on a computer and in a paper-and-pencil format. GED testing is exclusively offered on a computer.
Until recently, online HiSET or GED testing was not possible. But now, this has changed with the arrival of online GED and HiSET testing option formats. Read more below.

Online GED and HiSET Testing Option
Until recently, GED or HiSET testing was not possible via the Internet. To earn a Louisiana HSE (high school equivalency) degree, you had to appear in person at one of Louisiana’s state-designated testing facilities. Now, however, with the arrival of online proctored HiSET and GED testing options, this has all changed. The online options are called ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home’ and the OP (Online Proctored) GED Test.
So now you can take the HiSET exam (five separate subtests) and GED test (four separate subtests) from home while an online proctor checks if you do it all in accordance with strict online testing requirements. Check out ‘The Online HiSET Test’ if you want to learn more. For more details about the Online Proctored GED Test, <- check here.

High School Equivalency Testing
For over 70 years, tens of thousands of Louisiana adults who never finished high school received their alternative diplomas by completing a series of tests usually referred to as the GED exam.
The GED (General Educational Development) was replaced in Louisiana by a different high school equivalency assessment, the HiSET (High School Equivalency Test), developed by ETS (Educational Testing Service), but now published by PSI.
The HiSET is offered both on paper and on a computer, whereas the GED is offered exclusively in a computer-based format. To see if you qualify, go to our post: GED testing in Louisiana.
