The HiSET can be done both on a computer and on paper, whereas the GED is fully computerized.

The exams are for persons who quit high school without a diploma and give them the opportunity to get hold of an equivalent degree.

The GED® exam has four independent subtests addressing the subject areas of

  • Mathematics
  • English Language Arts
  • Science
  • Social Studies

You can take (and pay for) one GED subtest (module) at a time.

The HiSET® exam contains five tests (the section literacy is divided into writing and reading tests) that are also modular.

Launching Online Proctored GED and HiSET Tests

In earlier days, the HiSET and the GED exams were not offered in online versions. They had to be taken in person at one of Pennsylvania’s state-approved HSE (High School Equivalency) testing facilities. That is, until just recently, as we saw the introduction of both online proctored GED and HiSET test-taking options.

For more detailed information on the new HiSET online test, read the following post: ‘The online HiSET test,’ and to read all about the recently launched GED online testing option, visit this post: ‘The online GED test.’
