Both options can be taken online and at state-approved test centers.

The assessments offer persons who never completed high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.

Both exams measure proficiency at a level that compares to that of HS students upon graduation.

The GED® is entirely computer-based, while the HiSET® is offered in both computer- and paper-based versions.

The GED has four separate tests that can be taken separately in the fields of

  • English Language
  • Social Studies
  • Math
  • Science

The HiSET has five tests, as Language comes with separate writing and reading tests. You may take the HiSET subtests separately as well.

Until recently, there was never an online option to take the HiSET or GED exam. That has changed, however, with the arrival of both HiSET and GED online proctored tests. Read more below.

Massachusetts GED Practice Tests

Online GED and HiSET

It used to be that online GED or HiSET testing was not possible. Both tests needed to be dealt with at one of Massachusetts’ state-approved testing centers. But now, we saw the introduction of an online, proctored testing option for both the HiSET and the GED exam.

To read more about online ‘HiSET-At-Home’ testing, check out this post: ‘The online HiSET exam,’ and to learn more about the online GED option, visit: ‘Introducing the online GED test.’

Your Future

Every year, more than 10,000 applicants take the GED or HiSET exam in Massachusetts, and the five individual tests of the HiSET are in the subject fields of Language Arts Reading, Language Arts Writing, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics.

Candidates can take the HiSET test on a computer, by using paper and pencils, or in a format that combines these two, although not all schools are ready for computer testing yet, so contact your testing center.

In Massachusetts, the cost for the entire set of five tests is $100, and this includes two re-takes per subject.

The HiSET and GED exams (GED is short for General Education Development) are designed for adults who never completed their high school education. Upon successful completion, students will receive a credential that is the equivalency of a common high school diploma.
