Four GED modules
Adults who did not finish their high school education have a great pathway to earn a HSE diploma and pursue a better future. The GED exam is now fully computerized whereas the TASC and HiSET still are offered both on paper and in a computer-based version. The GED test includes four separate subtests (modules) in Science, Math, Literacy, and Social Studies. The TASC and HiSET come with five (non-modular) tests as writing and reading are separate.

The GED alternatives TASC and HiSET
California decided to make two also nationally operating alternative HSE (high school equivalency) testing programs available to its residents, the HiSET and TASC examinations. These models are cheaper and offered in both paper- and computer-based formats, whereas the 2014 GED exam is only available on a computer. HiSET and TASC have two separate literacy tests (writing and reading), so five in total. Testing centers themselves can decide which testing method(s) they use, so check with a testing site near you. All California testing centers can be found here.
Who can take the HSE exam?
The GED diploma is ideal for adults who, for several reasons, were not able to finish the 4 years of high school education. You can enroll in classes which are offered at your local community college and at some private facilities. Go through the list provided above and discover the GED classes that are being offered in your locality.
But if you are busy with family obligations and work-related tasks, you can benefit from online classes or study at home programs that offer you convenience. These two options ensure that you don’t always rush from your place of work to school. You can study at your convenience when you are free from work and family related obligations.
However, there is a word of advice – ensure that the online GED program which you enroll in is legitimate. Look at our review of free online GED classes, preparation books, and practice tests just to be on the safe side. These learning resources ensure that you get ready to take your GED tests.
