Why the HiSET® Exam?

Making a difference

Now the fastest-growing exam in the market, the HiSET® exam is offered to millions of out-of-school youth and adults across the country. With its exceptional customer service and program support, the HiSET program is making a powerful difference in adult education by offering:

  • a choice of paper- or computer-delivered formats that enable candidates to work in their optimal test environment
  • a secure, web-based reporting portal to provide quick test results and other actionable data
  • a Spanish-language version to address the needs of candidates who are more comfortable testing in that language

Aligned with current standards

The HiSET exam was created by ETS along with critical input from states, educators and testing centers. The stakeholders' input ensured that the HiSET exam was consistent with current high school curricula and aligned to the most recent College and Career Readiness Standards for adults.

Is the HiSET TEST Valid?

California is a multiple-option state which means...

 

        Prior to 2014, there was only one test available for those without a high school diploma to earn their high school equivalency credential, the GED® test. Today, CALIFORNIA offers test takers the choice of which test they feel most comfortable taking:

  • The HiSET® exam (available at LBSA)
  • The GED® test (not available at LBSA)
  • The TASC™ test (not available at LBSA)

Each of these high school equivalency tests assess the same skills and knowledge in mathematics, science, social studies and language arts, and each earns a test taker the same state-issued high school equivalency credential when successfully completed.
