In this post, you can discover all GED® and HiSET® prep facilities and testing centers in the Barnstable area. Massachusetts is using two options for its High School Equivalency (HSE) testing program, the GED and HiSET exams.
Both the HiSET and the GED are now available in an online format as well. Read more below.
HSE testing provides persons who left high school without graduating the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.
Testing takes place at a level that’s similar to what’s expected from graduating high school students.
The GED is fully computerized and has four individual tests in the fields of Science, Literacy, Social Studies, and Math.
You can take one GED subtest (module) at a time. No need to deal with the entire GED battery in one take.
The HiSET comes with separate reading and writing tests, so five in total that may be dealt with individually as well. The HiSET subtests can also be taken separately if you wish.
The five HiSET subtests are available both on paper and on a computer while the GED exam is administered exclusively in a computer-based format.

New Online GED and HiSET testing options
Until recently, there never was an option to take the GED or HiSET exam over the internet. However, recent developments have changed this. Both high school equivalency tests now have introduced online testing options.
For information about online HiSET testing, check out this post: HiSET exam can now be taken online and for GED online testing information, visit this page: New online option to take the GED exam introduced.
The GED credential
The High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma will lead to better employment and allows for higher education so holders of the degree can pursue the career of their dreams.
To find out whether you can partake in the state’s HSE program, go to this page: GED or HiSET in Massachusetts.
GED scoring is done on a 100 – 200 scale where 145 – 164 is the H.S equivalency passing score, 165 – 174 is the College-Ready score, and 175 – 200 is the College-Ready plus Credit score. The HiSET exam has a different scoring method.
The diploma that you will receive when you complete the Massachusetts HiSET or GED exam successfully, is nationally recognized and accepted as equivalent to a standard high school diploma by employers, government bodies, colleges, and universities.
GED or HiSET prep classes will educate you on the same fundamental subject matters that students are taught in high school, and the testing subject areas are language reading, language writing, math, science, and social studies.
