Top Learning Tips For GED Students

New online HiSET testing option

Until recently, 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 HiSET testing facilities. Now, however, with the arrival of an online proctored HiSET testing option, this has all changed. The online option is called ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home.’

So now you can take the HiSET exam (five 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.

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).

The HiSET is more affordable than the GED and 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 (HiSET) testing in Louisiana.
