Oklahoma is offering test-takers three options for high school equivalency (HSE) testing, the GED®, HiSET, and TASC exams.
HSE testing gives persons who never finished high school the opportunity to obtain an equivalent degree.
The GED is entirely computer-based whereas TASC and HiSET are available in both paper-based and computer-based formats.
The GED includes 4 independent subtests in Language Arts (reading and writing combined), Social Studies, Science, and Math.
You can take one of the four GED tests (modules) at a time and your test scores have a validity of two years from the moment of first registration.
The TASC and HiSET come with five subtests (Literacy has individual writing and reading tests) that, if you wish, can be taken individually as well.
There is NO online testing option and not all test centers administer all three HSE tests, so get well-informed.
Regardless of whether you recently dropped out of high school or you are an adult who never finished high school, getting your HSE diploma will certainly help you get ahead in life.
Oklahoma GED testing requirements
In Oklahoma, the minimum age is 18. For younger applicants, special arrangements apply. Oklahoma requires state residency.
The fee for the GED exam (4 sub-tests) is $136.00 in Oklahoma, and retesting is $34.00 per test/module. TASC and HiSET are less expensive.
Test-takers cannot already hold a high school diploma and are not engaged in another school program.
The minimum age for HSE testing is 18 but 16 and 17-year-olds may also qualify if they meet strict regulations so check with a testing site near you.
GED prep sites in Oklahoma
You can prepare for the GED, HiSET, or TASC by studying online but you can also choose a traditional GED prep class near you. Click on your nearest city to see all prep sites in your area.
By the time you are ready, you can take the GED (or the TASC or HiSET) exam at an official Oklahoma testing site near you. There is NO online testing option. Information with a different message is fraudulent.
When you’ve passed the exam, you will receive the state’s HSE diploma, which is the equivalency of a standard high school diploma. The HSE program is created to offer those people who never completed high school another chance to earn an equivalent degree.
With the help of preparation classes, online or at a physical site, passing the HSE exam will become less stressful.

Prepare well for the GED
Students can contact their nearest HSE prep or testing center to see if they are eligible to take the GED, TASC, or HiSET exam. If you have a high school diploma or similar, or when you are signed up for any school program, the HSE exam is not for you. Get well informed at an HSE center. Check out if the program is free, and get optimally prepared.
The four separate GED modules (independent subtests) must be taken exclusively on a computer whereas the TASC and HiSET exams are offered both on paper and on a computer. For enrollment in a GED prep class, please request and fill out an appropriate form and if you contact a prep site, the staff will be glad to help you if require some aid. The adult education department of your school board can provide additional information as well about prerequisites, fees, and more.
Your local bookstore or the community library can supply study material and you can find online preparation as well for support, but probably the best preparation is offered programs at GED prep facilities, often at no cost at all, in combination with an online course like what’s offered at no cost on this website. Online learning allows for studying at times that are in line with the calendar of a student. A directory of all prep sites is listed above if you click on your city or a city near you.
Discover a good strategy. The GED (General Education Development) has not so many multiple-choice questions left, most of the questions require essay-style answers. Finding a good strategy will boost your confidence and improve your scores. When taking the exam, just remember the strategies you learned in GED classes. HiSET and TASC are for the larger part still multiple-choice, only the essay part is not.
Jobs with a GED
Acquiring the HSE diploma will definitely help you land a new job, be used for a more rewarding career, and let you attend college-level courses. If you didn’t finish your high school education and don’t have a GED, you are expected to earn at least $9,000 less annually than people who have a secondary school degree.
Over the last two decades, more than 67,000 adults have received their GED diploma in Oklahoma. Most of the many Oklahoma new job positions are found in the fields of Health Care and Financial Services. The newly created jobs are mostly at entry-level and require at least a high school or GED diploma, but also if you want to be eligible for a promotion at your current job, you will need to have a secondary education degree as well, so be wise and invest some time in completing your high school education.

No online HSE testing
HiSET, GED, or TASC testing can only be taken at state-designated testing sites. You need to report in person if you want to sit for the exam. Online testing is NOT possible. Websites that tell you something different are false! The diplomas or certificates that these con artists issue are absolutely worthless, and will surely not be accepted for admission into colleges, universities, or by employers. The GED is a rigorous assessment but also a great way to map out the road towards a fulfilling career.
One test at a time
You can take one of the four separate GED tests individually at one of Oklahoma’s more than 50 accredited and state-approved HSE testing centers. Your testing scores will stand for two years from your initial registration. So prepare for one subtest, or module, pass that part and move on to the next section. The TASC and HiSET subject tests are also available separately. If you set up your account at the portal MyGED on the website GED.com, you can schedule your test appointments and learn more about the accessibility of academic courses, admissions policies, access to business opportunities, developments on the job market, and much more.
GED, HiSET, TASC passing scores
Initially, the passing score on each of the GED subject field tests was determined at 150 on a 100-200 scale. This appeared to be too high so two years after the introduction of the new GED test, this was brought back to 145 across the nation. Below passing score: 100-144. passing score: 145-164. College-ready score: 165-174. College-ready plus college credit score: 175-200.
HiSET scoring happens on a scale that runs to 20 and the minimally required result on each of the five subtests is 8. The essay result must be at least a 2 out of 6 and the overall score must be no less than 45.
The five TASC subtests are measured on a 300 to 800 scale and here, the passing score is 500 so the minimally required overall score is 2500while the essay result must be at least a 2 out of a possible 8i points.
Passing the HSE (High School Equivalency) test is crucial for your future. It allows for a college education and will definitely lead to better job options and a decent income.
