Colorado is using three options for high school equivalency (HSE) testing, the GED®, HiSET®, and TASC. The HSE test offers adults who never finished high school one more shot at earning an equivalent degree.
All three HSE tests measure academic proficiency at a level comparable to that of HS seniors upon graduation.
The GED is only available in a computerized model while the TASC and HiSET ore offered both on paper and on a computer.
There are four GED subtests in Social Studies, Math, Science, and Literacy.
The HiSET and TASC contain five subtests as the Language Arts (Literacy) field has separate writing and reading tests.
You can find numerous locations in Colorado where HSE preparation is offered, most of the time at no or little cost.
GED preparation classes are organized to help you get all set to confidently take on the HSE test at a designated Colorado Testing Center.
Not all testing sites offer all three HSE tests so please check with a test center near you!

How To Prepare Well
Find a GED prep facility near you and see if you qualify. If you do, you will certainly get all the help you need at these locations. Discover their registration policies, and if you want to register for and schedule one or more GED tests, you need to do it online with the portal MyGED on the website GED.com.
You need an actual email address and if you don’t, you can create one online at MyGED. Make sure you become totally prepared for the exam. Your community bookstore also can supply all sorts of preparation materials and you can discover also some pretty good free online preparation options.
A great career will be waiting for a student who successfully takes the four GED modules or the five HiSET or TASC subtests and has demonstrated he or she has the skills and knowledge to succeed in college and the work floor.
You may also contact a school’s adult education department by email or phone to see if there is any financial support available. Department education staff can help you with mastering the main content of the GED exam and with admissions requirements of colleges and universities.
Visit also education events and job fairs to learn all about financial aid, scholarships, and all news related to getting a good job and a brighter future.
GED students with a well-rounded educational background may skip main content areas and get started with taking practice tests to discover their weaker points that need their attention before they can complete the GED (General Education Development) exam successfully and they won’t need a year or longer to do so! After passing the GED, HiSET, or TASC exam, students will receive their diploma including transcripts.

GED, HiSET, TASC Costs
Registration has become easy, just go to GED.com and when you want to take a test, you only pay for that subject upon registration. You are free to schedule each test section on a different day, or more sections on one day.
In Colorado, you pay $37.50 per test section ($150 for the complete set of four tests). The “digitalized” GED exam consists of four sections: Math (90 minutes), English Language Arts (150 minutes including a break), Social Studies (70 minutes), and Science (90 minutes). HiSET and TASC are slightly cheaper. Don’t forget to check our article about signing up for your GED exam with the MyGED website.
The passing score for each of the four GED tests is 145, so you needed a minimum score of 580 points in total. The HiSET passing score is 8 out of 20 on each of the five subtests and the essay score must be no less than 2 out of 6. The HiSET testing fee in Colorado is $27.50 for each of 5 individual subtests. Students will receive up to two retakes per subtest.
The TASC minimum passing score is 500 for each subtest. The TASC testing fee in Colorado $28.30 for each of 5 subtests. After successful completion of the GED, HiSET, or TASC exam, you will receive the GED diploma.
Going for the Colorado HSE diploma really makes sense if you never finished high school. It gives you the chance to find decent employment or get a better job, and the credential will also let you enter college or university.
