The exams offer individuals who quit high school prematurely the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree. The GED is a fully computerized exam, whereas the HiSET is offered both on paper and on a computer.

Online HiSET and GED Testing

Candidates for the Colorado HSE (High School Equivalency) diploma can take the GED and HiSET exams online as well. To take the GED or HiSET exam, it used to be that personal appearance at a test center was required. Well, that’s something of the past.

Today, both the GED and HiSET exams are also offered online with the help of an online proctor. Read more about this interesting development in these posts: online GED testing and for the HiSET, go to online HiSET testing.
