GED Classes Sacramento, California

Posted in this article are all GED® class sites and testing sites in the Sacramento area. California is using two options for high school equivalency testing, the GED and HiSET®.

Both tests can be taken online or at one of California’s certified testing facilities. Check below for more details on online testing.

The HSE exam offers adults who left high school before graduation another chance at securing an equivalent diploma.

Both tests assess knowledge at a level similar to what can be expected of high school seniors upon graduation.

The GED has four subtests (modules) in math, science, literacy, and social studies that may be taken separately.

The HiSET includes five tests (separate writing and reading tests) that can be taken individually as well.

GED and HiSET exams online

Students that want to acquire a California HSE (high school equivalency) diploma can now also take the HiSET or GED exam online. It used to be that online GED and HiSET testing was not an option. Test-takers had to appear in person at one of California’s designated test centers and sit for one of the exams in person.

Well, that has changed. The GED and HiSET tests are now also offered in an online, proctored format. You can read more about this development here: online HiSET proctored testing, and for the GED exam check out the post online proctored GED exam.

GED passing score

The GED exam comes with a passing scale that goes from 100 to 200. You need to get a score of at least 145 points for each of the four separate tests, so no less than 580 in total. Below passing: 100-144; high school equivalency passing score: 145-164; college-ready score: 165-174; college-ready plus credit score: 175-200.

The HiSET exam includes five testing subjects (literacy is divided into writing and reading sections) that can be taken on a computer or in a paper-based version. Testing centers can decide which one (or both) of the systems they will use.

To pass the HiSET exam, you need to score between 8 and 20 points on each of the five tests, your essay result must be in the 2-6 points range, and your overall score cannot be under 45 points. To get optimally prepared fast, check out the page about GED and HiSET video lessons.
