Adjusted GED scoring

Please note that in early 2016, the passing standards for the four GED tests were adjusted. The required minimum score was brought back five points to 145. A full article about this great news is available in our GED News posts. TASC and HiSET come with different scoring methods.

GED-TASC-HiSET passing scores

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.

On the TASC, you must come to a 500-800 points score for each of the five sub-tests, and your essay cannot score under two points. You pass the HiSET exam if you score between 8 and 20 points on each of the five tests, if your essay result is in the 2-6 points range, and if your overall score is no below 45 points. To get optimally prepared fast, check out the page about GED-HiSET-TASC video lessons.

GED alternatives

The two alternative assessment methods (HiSET and TASC) include five testing subjects (literacy is divided into a writing and a reading section) and are available also in a paper-based version. Testing centers can decide which one (or more) of the systems they will use, so you need to contact your testing site to get advice.

The new GED

For now, let’s look at the new GED examination. Just like the other two assessment methods, the GED program is for adults who don’t have a high school diploma. The certificate that you receive upon completing the California GED (General Education Development) exam successfully, is recognized and accepted as equivalent to a high school diploma by business employers, government institutions, and colleges all over the United States.

Online GED testing?

The GED exam.like the TASC and HiSET, allows you to prove that you have the knowledge at the level of a student who graduated from high school. The GED exam is not available on the internet, nor are TASC and HiSET. You will have to show up in person at an official testing center. If you come across a website that tells something else, that site must be fraudulent. Be aware! Online acquired documents are worthless and are sure to be unacceptable for schools and employers. In the state of California, the GED test is administrated by the state’s Department of Education, and candidates who successfully carry out the test will receive the California High School Equivalency Certificate.
