Online GED Classes

A simple and easy way of getting your GED diploma.

Learn fast, stay motivated, and pass your GED quickly.

The assessments offer adults who left high school prematurely the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.

The HiSET® comes with five subtests in

  • Language Reading
  • Language Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies

The GED has four subject tests because the sections of reading and writing were combined into one “Reasoning through Language Arts” Test.

HiSET and GED testing occurs at a level similar to what HS seniors are expected to command upon graduation.

The five HiSET or four GED subtests can be taken one at a time and in any order.

The HiSET is offered on a computer or in a paper-based format, while the GED test is fully computer-based.

In the past, the GED and HiSET subtests had to be taken at a state-recognized testing site, as online HiSET testing was not possible.

Recent developments, however, have changed that with the launch of the online GED and HiSET exams. Learn more below.

Online HiSET and GED Testing

In earlier days, sitting for the five HiSET subtests via the Internet was never possible. Recently, though, we’ve witnessed an interesting new development with the launch of an online option, the ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home.’

For more information about the Online Proctored (OP) GED exam, <- check out this page.

When taking the HiSET exam at home, an online proctor will help you through the testing process and will check if everything is occurring correctly. Go to ‘Launching the online HiSET test’ if you wish to learn more about this great development.

Why the HSE Exam?

A few years back, Montana’s officials stopped offering the GED exam, the state’s longtime HSE (high school equivalency) examination, to continue with a new testing program.

The HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) works just like the former GED (General Education Development) version. Montana decided to introduce another HSE exam provider after GED Testing Service (a for-profit company consisting of the American Council on Education – ACE – and textbook and assessment developing giant Pearson) decided to double the fee for the computer-based GED exam.

Now, Montana education officials decided to reintroduce the computer-formatted GED test alongside the HiSET exam, which can be written on a computer or on paper.

Passing Scores

On each one of the five HiSET subtests, your score must be in the 8-20 range, your essay result must be no less than 2, and the total score needs to be at least 45. Averaging is no option, so a result of 8 points is minimally required on each of the five modules.

On the GED exam, you must reach at least a 145 score on each of the four modules (independent sub-exams). The scoring scale runs from 100 to 200, where scores 100-144 are below passing; 145-154 high school equivalency; 165-174 college-ready; 175-200 college-ready + credit.
