Alternatives HiSET and TASC

California has decided also to offer the state’s residents two alternative High School Equivalency testing methods (the TASC and the HiSET – see below). Testing sites can decide which (or all) tests they will use, so contact a GED testing site near you for specifics. The GED, TASC, and HiSET exams measure knowledge on basic subjects at a level that high school students must command upon graduation.

Four GED tests

The four separate subtests (modules) of the new GED exam are in literacy, math, science, and social studies. The TASC and HiSET have five subtests that are not modular. These alternatives come with two separate Literacy tests, one in writing and one in reading. Testing sites decide on which HSE exam(s) they use, so get well-informed.

Adjusted GED scoring

The required minimum score per GED test was in early 2016 adjusted to 145 (down from 150 on a 100 – 200 scale). More details are available in our GED News pages. HiSET and TASC have different scoring systems. Please note that online testing is NOT possible. You must come to a state-designated testing site.

Online GED testing?

Although the totally revised GED program is now digital, there is NO internet option to sit for the four tests. You are, just like before, required to make your appearance at one of California’s many GED testing sites.

This also applies to the two alternative assessments (HiSET and TASC). You can find plenty of good online GED prep programs, and in some cases, online learning is a blessing (for those in rural or remote regions, or very busy individuals). Check out these GED video lessons and practice tests, a great help to get all set for the real thing.

GED cost

In California, the GED program is open to adult learners 18 and older. When you are 16 or 17, you may qualify, but there are strict regulations. You must be officially withdrawn from school requirements, and you must have parental consent, so contact a GED center near you.

The GED exam price tag is $140 for the entire battery, but you can take (and pay for) 1 test at the time when you are ready ($35). HiSET and TASC are cheaper. You must be a California resident, you must not have a secondary degree, and not be registered for any other school program.

*) Vision Literacy

Vision Literacy offers ESL (English as a Second Language) classes at various locations. Completing these classes will allow participants to sign up for GED preparation classes so they can get better employment with decent earnings, or continue their education at a university or college.

Vision Literacy, for example, has partnered with the City of Sunnyvale, and expanded its great ESL tutoring model to the Sunnyvale area and offers a new class held at Columbia Middle School. The Sunnyvale class is very popular, and new students sign up every week. Applicants are first assessed so they can join an appropriate level group. Here they work on improving their literacy competencies such as speaking, reading, and writing.
