The HSE program is for adults who left high school prematurely and offers them another chance to earn an equivalent credential.

The GED exam is entirely computerized and includes four individual subtests in Science, Math, Social Studies, and Literacy.
The TASC and HiSET come with five tests as the section Literacy has two tests, one in reading and one in writing.

GED, TASC, HiSET
The GED exam includes four tests in these academic subjects: Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Besides the GED, California residents can also take the alternatives, the TASC and the HiSET tests, but testing sites decide which exam(s) they are using, so contact a test center close to you. The HSE (high school equivalency) diploma is accepted by practically all U.S. schools and employers.
The GED program has been used for more than seven decades to assess test-takers’ knowledge and skills at the level that can be expected of high school seniors. The GED diploma is necessary to get into higher education, to get a decent job, and to qualify for job promotions.
The GED exam is available in English and Spanish. The GED (General Education Development) examination is a nationally recognized set of four tests created to assess the skills and concepts typically learned during a regular four-year high school education.
Practically all employers, community colleges, and universities accept the GED certificate in lieu of a high school credential. The GED exam consists of four separate tests: Literacy, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science.
To pass, students must receive a score of no less than 145 points on each test module, so a total score of 580 points across the four test modules. HiSET and TASC are scored in their own ways.
