Online GED and HiSET Testing

Both the GED and the HiSET are now offered in an online format as well. Until recently, that was not possible, and to earn their high school equivalency diploma, students had to come to an official state-designated testing site and sit for the exams in person.

That has changed. The GED and HiSET tests are now also available in an online proctored format. If you want to read more about this great development, go to these posts: The online GED exam, and for information on the HiSET exam, check out: The online HiSET exam.

The GED Credential

The certificate that you will be handed out after you successfully complete the California High School Equivalency (HSE) test is all over the country accepted as being equivalent to a standard high school diploma.

The GED (General Education Development) test examines fundamental subject areas that students learn in high school, and subjects addressed in the exam and in GED preparation programs include math, science, literacy or language arts (writing and reading), and social studies.

GED and HiSET

The HiSET is also available in paper format, whereas the GED exam is only offered on a computer.  The GED (General Education Development) test and the HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) are developed especially for adults who don’t have a high school diploma.

These programs are offering them one more opportunity to obtain a diploma that compares to a standard high school diploma. The HiSET exam has five subtests that cover Science, Social Studies, Language Arts Writing, Language Arts Reading, and Math. The GED has four subtests as it has combined the Reading and Writing tests into one Language Arts subtest.

Test centers can decide which of the testing programs they will administer, so check with the test center near you. The HiSET program offers the test in both a paper-formatted and a computerized version.

Passing Scores

Your GED scores are calibrated on a 100-200 scale. The passing score is 145 on each of the four modules.

  • 145-164 = high school equivalent GED score
  • 165-174: college-ready GED score
  • 175-200 = college-ready + credit GED score

Your HiSET results are calibrated on a 0-20 scale. The HiSET passing score is 8 points on each sub-test, your total result must be in the 45-100 range, and your essay must at least have a 2 out of 6 score.
