Posted in this article are all GED (HiSET in Iowa) class options and testing centers in the Sioux City area. Iowa is using the HiSET for its high school equivalency testing program.
The HiSET exam is given at official HiSET testing facilities and online.
The HiSET®, like the GED®, assesses skills and knowledge at a level similar to what high school students must command at graduation.
There are five HiSET subtests covering these subjects:
- Language Reading
- Language Writing
- Social Studies
Testing can be done on a computer or in a paper and pencil format.
In the past, online HiSET testing was never possible. The exam had to be taken at an Iowa-approved test center.
However, the arrival of the online HiSET-At-Home online test-taking option has changed all of that. Learn more below.

Introducing the Online HiSET Exam
In the past, taking the HiSET exam online was not possible. You had to appear, in person, at one of Iowa’s state-approved test facilities if you wished to get hold of your Iowa high school equivalency (HSE) diploma.
Now, with the introduction of the online HiSET-At-Home testing option, this has changed. A proctor sees online if everything goes in accordance with strict regulations. To learn more, check out The Online HiSET-At-Home Test.
