HiSET testing is available at state-approved test centers and online as well in many states but not in Maine.

The Maine HiSET test gives adults who didn’t succeed in graduating high school an extra chance to obtain an equivalent degree.

The HiSET, like the GED exam, tests knowledge at a level similar to what high students must command upon graduation.

The exam includes five tests in the subject areas of

  • English Reading
  • English Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies

These modules (independent sub-exams) may be completed on paper or in a computer-based version and, if you wish, one at a time.

HiSET testing was, until recently, not offered online, but that has now changed with the arrival of a new online proctored format called the HiSET-At-Home Exam. Learn more below. Be aware, though, that online HiSET testing is not available in Maine.

The Maine diploma that’s awarded upon successful completion of the HiSET exam is all across America accepted in lieu of a common high school degree.

Introducing the Online HiSET Test

The HiSET test, like the GED exam, was never offered via the Internet. To earn your high school equivalency diploma, your personal appearance at one of the official HiSET testing facilities was needed. However, with the introduction of an online HiSET test-taking option called the HiSET-At-Home Exam, this has changed. In Maine, however, online testing is not (yet?) available.

So in many states, you may take the HiSET assessment from your own home in an online format. A proctor will then oversee the entire process and check if your online test-taking activities occur in line with the regulations. To learn more, check out: ‘The Online HiSET Test.’
