The tests provide adults who didn’t graduate from high school the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.

Both exams measure knowledge at a level that’s comparable to that of high school students upon graduation.

The GED® exam has four separate tests that may be taken separately, covering the academic subjects of

  • Math
  • English Language
  • Social Studies
  • Science

Until recently, the GED or HiSET test could not be taken online. You needed to report in person to one of Massachusetts’ state-approved GED/HiSET test centers. Recent developments have, however, changed that. Check below for online HiSET and GED testing options.

Top learning tips for GED or HiSET students

Online GED and HiSET Testing Options

It used to be that there was no option to deal with the GED or HiSET exam over the Internet. Testing was done at a state-designated Massachusetts testing facility. Now, all of that has changed as we saw the arrival of online testing options for both the HiSET and the GED exam.

You can learn all about the ‘HiSET-At-Home’ exam in an online format here: ‘Online HiSET test,’ and for online GED testing information, go to this page: ‘Online GED exam.’

Massachusetts Free Online GED Classes

Massachusetts’ Department of Elementary and Secondary Education announced that now, the state covers the fees of GED and HiSET. Read more details and about promo codes here.

Your Future

If you are thinking about getting your HSE (High School Equivalency) Certificate, be sure to get as prepared as you possibly can. Massachusetts introduced the HiSET for the state’s High School Equivalency Testing Program to replace the GED test but decided to also offer the GED exam again for this purpose.

No matter how you get ready, just make sure you will pass the GED or HiSET exam, get a good job, improve your income, and get on the road to a brighter future.

When you visit a testing site, don’t forget to carry a valid photo ID. In Massachusetts, the HiSET exam is offered computer-based and in paper format. Testing results will be ready in a few weeks (paper version) or right after the exam (computer format), except for the section writing. The GED is exclusively available on a computer.
