GED Classes Hammond, Louisiana

This page shows all GED® (in Louisiana: HiSET®) prep classes and testing centers in the Hammond area. Louisiana uses the HiSET exam for the purpose of High School Equivalency (HSE) testing.

The HiSET exam offers adults who don’t hold a high school diploma the chance to earn an equivalent degree.

Testing takes place at a level that is comparable to that of high school students upon graduation.

The HiSET (short for High School Equivalency Test) contains five subtests in Language Reading, Language Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

HiSET testing is possible both on a computer and in a paper-and-pencil format.

Until recently, online HiSET or GED testing was not possible. But now, this has changed with the arrival of a new online testing option format. Read more below.

Top Learning Tips For GED Students

To see if you qualify, go to GED (HiSET) testing in Louisiana.

New online HiSET testing option 

Until recently, HiSET testing was not possible via the internet. To earn a Louisiana HSE (high school equivalency) degree, you had to appear, in person, at one of Louisiana’s state-designated HiSET testing facilities. Now, however, with the arrival of an online proctored HiSET testing option, this has all changed. The online option is called ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home’.

So now you can take the HiSET exam (five separate subtests) from home while an online proctor will see checks if you do it all in accordance with strict online testing requirements. Check out ‘Online HiSET Testing Option’ if you want to learn more.

For over 70 years, tens of thousands of Louisiana adults who never finished high school received their alternative diplomas by completing a series of tests usually referred to as the GED exam.

The GED (General Educational Development) was replaced in Louisiana by a different high school equivalency assessment, the HiSET (High School Equivalency Test), developed by ETS (Educational Testing Service).

The HiSET is more affordable than the GED and offered both on paper and on a computer whereas the GED is offered exclusively in a computer-based format.
