This article lets you discover all GED® and HiSET® prep class sites and testing facilities in the Fall River area. Massachusetts is using two options for its high school equivalency (HSE) test program, the GED and the HiSET.
HiSET and GED testing is available online and at certified testing centers.
The HSE program is for adults who left high school before graduating and gives them another chance to acquire an equivalent diploma.
The HSE exam assesses knowledge and capacities at a level that compares to that of high school graduates.
The GED test comes with four separate subject tests in the areas of Social Studies, Literacy, Science, and Math.
The four GED subtests (modules) can be dealt with separately.
The HiSET exam includes an English reading and an English writing test, so five subtests in total that can be taken separately as well.
Online GED or HiSET testing was, until recently, not possible. Personal appearance at a state0designated Massachusetts testing site was required. Recent developments have changed that, however. Check below for information on new online GED and HiSET testing options.

New online GED or HiSET testing options
Until recently, there never had been an option to sit for the HiSET or GED exam via the internet. That has changed, however, now a new online test-taking option was introduced for both the HiSET and the GED exam.
Modular GED or HiSET testing
The GED is modular. You have the option to take one or more subtests (modules) at a time. The HiSET subtests are available in both a paper-based and a computer-based version and are also modular.
To see if you can sign up for the Massachusetts HSE program go to this page: GED or HiSET in Massachusetts.
The HSE (high school equivalency) credential is accepted just like a standard high school diploma across the nation. The degree will lead to better jobs and is the ticket to higher education. This way, they will have another shot at getting the career of their dream.
The GED exam is scored on a scale of 100 to 200 where the 145-164 range indicates high school equivalency, the 165-174 range indicates college-ready status, and the 175-200 range is the college-ready plus college credit score. The HiSET comes with its own scoring system.
With the GED program, many of the multiple-choice questions have gone. Now candidates will need to show their line of thinking when they work out mathematical questions, and you can take one of the four modules/tests at a time.
In the subject areas of Science and Social Studies, you must display your capability to think critically and focus on problem-solving as you address the questions before you. You need to show your level of awareness and your ability to analyze and solve issues.
