This page lists all GED and HiSET prep sites and testing facilities in the Framingham area. Massachusetts offers two options for high school equivalency testing, the GED and the HiSET.
Both tests can be taken at state-approved test centers and online.
The assessments offer adults who could not complete their HS curriculum the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.
The tests are at a level comparable to what HS seniors must command when they graduate.
The GED® has four subtests in Reasoning through Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematical Reasoning.
The HiSET® has separate reading and writing tests, so five in total. The GED is computer-based, while the HiSET is offered on-paper and on-computer.
The four GED subtests (modules) may be completed separately, and you can also take the five HiSET modules one at a time if you wish.
It used to be that online GED and HiSET testing was not an option, but now, that has all changed. Check below for more information about the online HiSET-At-Home exam and the GED online testing option.

Introducing Online HiSET And GED Test-Taking Options
Until recently, there was no possibility of dealing with the HiSET or GED exam online. Testing was exclusively done at state-designated testing facilities. Well, that has changed. Recently, we saw the introduction of both an online HiSET test-taking option and an online GED testing format.
A few years ago, Massachusetts decided to cancel the GED test and replace it with the more affordable HiSET (by ETS – Educational Testing Service) for the state’s High School Equivalency (HSE) assessment program. Later, though, Massachusetts re-introduced the GED alongside the HiSET.
The General Educational Development (GED) test and the HiSET (short for High School Equivalency Test) are internationally recognized. They were developed to measure basic academic knowledge and skills in core subject areas that usually are learned in 4 years of high school education.
The GED exam is measured on a scale that runs from 100 to 200, with 145-164 scaled score points considered as the Passing Standard for high school equivalency. 165-174 scaled score equals College Ready Scores, and 175-200 score points are College Ready + College Credit Scores.
On the HiSET exam, you must reach at least an 8-score (out of 20) on each of the five modules. Your overall score must be 45 or higher, and your essay must yield at least a 2 out of a possible 6 score.
