No online testing

All three HSE exams can NOT be done online. You must show up in person at a state-approved HSE testing site if you plan to go for your high school equivalency credential. If you see a website that tells you something different, you deal with a site that’s run by scam artists who just want to steal your dollars. There simply is NO GED testing via the internet.

The GED alternatives TASC & HiSET

The state of California not only offers the new GED program to its residents for their high school equivalency/proficiency testing. Since January 2014, Californians (or rather, the testing centers) have the option to choose between the GED, the TASC, and the HiSET testing programs.

The TASC and HiSET offer both computer and paper-based testing and include five testing sections (language arts is divided into a reading and a writing test). This way the state offers more second chances to help high school dropouts in their efforts to get back on track by earning a secondary education credential that leads to the High School Equivalency Diploma.

Actually, the GED (or HiSET and TASC for that matter) should never be more than just an alternate track to college and career. It is true that a high school diploma gives a better foundation to become successful in life. Then again, for high school dropouts, the GED/HISET/TASC is absolutely the best option they have.
