The HiSET® exam, short for High School Equivalency Test, is an assessment that provides individuals with the opportunity to earn a state-issued high school equivalency credential. Similar to the GED®, the HiSET® is recognized by colleges, universities, and employers as equivalent to a high school diploma. It is designed to measure the academic knowledge and skills that are expected of high school graduates. The HiSET® exam covers five core areas:

Language Arts – Reading: This section evaluates the test-taker's ability to understand, interpret, and analyze a wide range of reading materials, including literary, informational, and nonfiction texts. Questions are designed to assess critical thinking and comprehension skills. The test includes multiple-choice questions based on reading passages.

Language Arts – Writing: This part is divided into two segments: writing mechanics and essay writing. The first part tests grammar, punctuation, and the structure of written English through multiple-choice questions. The second part requires test-takers to write an essay that expresses their opinion or explains a particular viewpoint, assessing their ability to organize ideas and write coherently.

Mathematics: The math section covers a broad range of topics, including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. It tests the ability to apply mathematical concepts and problem-solving skills in practical situations. The mathematics test includes multiple-choice questions, and test-takers are allowed to use a calculator for part of the section.

Science: This section measures the test-taker's understanding of scientific concepts and principles, including life science, physical science, and earth and space science. It assesses the ability to apply scientific reasoning, interpret scientific data, and understand scientific texts. The science test consists of multiple-choice questions based on scientific information and data presented in various formats.

Social Studies: The social studies section evaluates knowledge and analytical skills related to history, geography, civics, and economics. It includes questions on historical events and documents, government and civic principles, geographical concepts, and economic systems. The test uses multiple-choice questions based on reading passages, documents, and visual materials like graphs and maps.
HiSET® Information
Each section of the HiSET® exam is scored separately, and test-takers must earn a minimum score of 8 out of 20 on each of the five subtests to earn their high school equivalency credential. In addition, they must score at least 2 out of 6 on the essay portion of the Language Arts – Writing test.
