GED Classes Atlantic City, New Jersey

This post lists all GED® prep class locations and testing sites in the Atlantic City region.

New Jersey welcomed the GED exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.

Additionally, the New Jersey Department of Education decided to welcome also the HiSET and the TASC exams.

The HSE exam is for adults who left high school prematurely and offers them the chance to earn an equivalent diploma.

In New Jersey, all three HSE exams must be taken in a computer-based format. No more paper-and-pencil testing.

The GED (General Education Development) exam has four separate tests (modules) in Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

Completion must be achieved within two years. This only counts for the GED!

The TASC and HiSET have five subtests (Literacy has separate reading and writing tests) that are not modular.

The GED exam – what’s new?

The most noticeable alteration to the GED exam is that it is now completely computer based. This means that applicants should at least have some typing and computer training before they can sit for the set of four GED tests. Go to HSE Testing in New Jersey for qualification requirements.

The GED exam covers some additional subjects in the Math and Science parts and has also some blended issues matter within all four sections (this means that candidates will notice there are questions in the science part that require math knowledge come up with numerical answers, or questions in the social studies section that require essay-writing competencies, and so on). With the new GED exam, you can take one test or ‘module’ at a time within a 2-year time frame.

For information about the adjusted GED passing score (lowered to 145 early 2016), visit this GED Scoring News page. HiSET and TASC have different scoring methods. You may also want to see this page that includes links to all GED programs and prep sites available in the US. Holding the New Jersey HSE diploma will definitely result in better and better-paying job options and the diploma also opens the door to a college education.

No online HSE testing

In New Jersey you can take the new computer-formatted GED exam (4 individual tests), the TASC exam (by McGraw-Hill), or the HiSET (by ETS). You can take the various high school equivalency exams only computer-based. Please note that there is NO online HSE testing. Personal appearance at a designated testing site is required.

Passing scores

Candidates will also see that all question are computer-based. You can find many prep classes that will guide you through the process of learning how to take a computer-based test and building further on the knowledge and skills you already have. New GED Test – New Scores: on a 100-200 scale you had to reach a score of 150 on all four tests, but in March 2016 this was reduced to 145.

The HiSET requires you to score at least 8 points on each of the five tests (out of 20), 2 points or higher for your essay, and 45 or higher overall. The TASC is scored on a scale that goes to 800, and your score on each test (five tests in total) must be in the 500-800 range, so 2500 or more. Here also must your essay result be at least two points.

The TASC and HiSET exams

About the TASC: McGraw-Hill Education’s TASC exam is also packed with all the things you need to be successful at the HSE (high school equivalency) test so you will acquire the high school credential you so badly want. Prep classes will provide you with TASC practice questions for best preparation and to find out your level of progress so you will know what to focus on most.

The TASC exam comes with five tests (while the GED exam has four tests) as there are two tests in the Language section on writing and reading. The HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) is developed by ETS and also comes with five tests, similar to the TASC. Paper-based testing is no longer an option in New Jersey except for those who qualify for an accommodation, for example, due to medical reasons.
