Both exams are for individuals who left high school prematurely and give them a chance to earn an equivalent degree.

The assessments measure fundamental knowledge at a level that compares to that of high school students after four years of education.

The HiSET® is available both on paper and on a computer, while the GED is fully computer-formatted.

The GED® has four individual subtests in literacy, math, science, and social studies that can be taken separately.

The HiSET exam has two literacy tests (1 on writing and 1 on reading), so five in total, that can also be taken separately.
