This article lists all GED (HiSET in Missouri) prep classes and testing facilities in the St. Joseph area. Missouri uses the HiSET for high school equivalency testing.
In the past, online HiSET testing was not possible. Now, however, we’ve seen the launch of the online ‘HiSET-At-Home’ exam. Learn more below.
The exam is for adult learners who did not graduate from high school and offers them the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The HiSET®, like the GED® exam, assesses knowledge at a level similar to what students must have learned in four years of high school.
There are five HiSET subtests that address the academic fields of math, science, writing, reading, and social studies.
The HiSET (short for High School Equivalency Test) is offered both on-paper and on-computer.

Online HiSET testing
In the past, there was no option to take the HiSET exam over the internet. But recently, we’ve seen some important new developments as an online HiSET test-taking was launched.
So now, you can also sit for the five HiSET modules from your home if you have a good internet connection. If you want to learn all about this new development, go to The online HiSET test.

In Missouri, sitting for the HiSET exam can be done one of the 5 subtests at a time. If you take the HiSET tests on a computer, the cost per subtest is $10,75 for ETS and $7 for the test center, so $17.75 in total per subtest.
If you want to take the 5 tests in a paper-and-pencil version, you pay a $15 ETS fee plus a $7 testing center administration fee, so $22 in total.
When you register for the first HiSET subtest, there will be an annual $10 state administration fee. This fee will be collected once every year. Per subject test, ETS will provide two (2) free retests per subtest, but you’ll still have to pay the $7 test center fee.
Please note that taking the HiSET exam online is more expensive. In Missouri, the HiSET Exam At Home will set you back $151.25 for the entire HiSET battery.
To pass the HiSET exam, you must at least attain a score of 8 (out of a possible 20) points on each of the five modules. Your overall score must be in the 45-100 range and your essay score must be at least 2 (out of 6).
