This article includes a list of all GED® or HiSET® testing facilities and prep class locations in the Quincy area. Massachusetts offers two options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED and the HiSET.
Both tests can be taken online and at state-certified HSE test centers.
The MA HSE exam gives adults who have not finished high school one more shot at securing an equivalent credential.
Both options are administered at a level similar to what students learn over four years of high school.
The computer-formatted GED has four individual subtests (modules) that can be taken individually.
The four GED subtests are in Math. Literacy, Social Studies, and Science.
HiSET testing can be done both on-paper and on-computer via five subtests in the fields of English Writing, English Reading, Science, Social Studies, and Math that you may also take separately.
Testing over the internet was, until recently, never possible. Your personal appearance was required at an official testing site but now we’ve seen the introduction of online testing options for both the HiSET and the GED test. More details are below.

A new online GED and HiSET testing option
It used to be that taking the GED or HiSET exam in an online format was no option. You always had to come to an official, state-designated test center. Recently, however, we saw the arrival of a new, online testing format for both the GED and HiSET exam.
To learn more about online ‘HiSET-At-Home’ testing, visit this post ‘HiSET test now also available online’ and for information related to online GED testing, check out: ‘A new online GED test-taking option welcomed’.
*) Quincy College
Quincy College (both Quincy and Plymouth campuses) are GED or HiSET (High School Equivalency) Testing Centers. Massachusetts joined Maine and New Hampshire to replace the GED with the HiSET exam by Educational Testing Service (ETS). Massachusetts decided later to offer the GED as well and Quincy College’s two campuses became official Pearson VUE testing centers.
The HiSET exam includes five test areas, just as formerly the GED: literacy reading, literacy writing, math, science, and social studies. The HiSET is available in various formats (on paper or on a computer) and in English and Spanish. The GED comes with four separate tests (modules).
The school offers a 10-week HSE preparation course to get students all set for the MA HSE (high school equivalency) exam, and applicants will first have to attend an orientation & registration session.
