The exam is geared towards individuals who quit high school prematurely and gives them a chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The HiSET®, just like the GED®, measures knowledge at a level that may be expected of students after four years in high school.
The exam comprises five subject tests in the fields of reading, writing, science, math, and social studies.
The HiSET is available in both paper- and computer-based formats, and the subtests may be taken individually.
In earlier days, HiSET testing had to be done at state-recognized testing sites. There was no online option, but the recent introduction of an online proctored HiSET exam has changed that. Learn more below at the bottom of this post.

Welcoming The Online HiSET Test
In the past, if you were looking to sit for the HiSET exam, your personal appearance at an official New Hampshire HiSET testing site was required. There simply was no online high school equivalency testing option offered.
But now, this has all changed with the arrival of the online proctored HiSET test. To learn more about the ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home’ option, check out Introducing the HiSET-At-Home test.

Why The HiSET Exam?
Just like many other states, New Hampshire started to look for available alternative methods because the non-profit ACE (The American Council on Education) had transferred its GED testing services to for-profit giant assessment developer Pearson VUE.
The HiSET exam offers a choice between computer and paper-based testing for the next few years and will gradually switch to only computer testing.
Pearson Vue introduced the computer-based GED program, and GED Testing Service spiked the exam fee to $120, almost double the amount New Hampshire applicants paid before.
The HiSET exam, however, now also costs a staggering $25 per one of the five subtests in New Hampshire! Having said that, affordability was one of the key reasons why New Hampshire turned away from the GED exam!
