This post includes a full listing of HiSET® (formerly GED®) prep locations and test centers in the West Plains area. Missouri is using the HiSET exam for the state’s high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
HSE testing is for adults who could not finish high school and offers them the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.
The HiSET contains five subtests in the academic subject fields of English Writing, English Reading, Social Studies, Science, and Math.
HiSET testing can be done computer-based or in a paper-and-pencil format. The subtests may be dealt with separately.
Now first-time HiSET testers can sit for the Missouri high school equivalency test at no charge. The state recently passed legislation that waives the regular HiSET fee (98,75) for first-time testers!
Taking the five HiSET modules in an online format was, until recently, no option. But now, we’ve witnessed the launch of a new online ‘HiSET-At-Home’ testing option. More information at the bottom of this post.
All over North America, schools, employers, and government organizations accept the diploma that’s awarded after successfully taking the HiSET exam just like a conventional HS degree.

A brighter future
The HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) is an alternative to the GED and also geared towards adults without a high school diploma. The exam offers them another chance to get hold of a diploma that is equivalent to a regular high school diploma. People who hold a secondary education degree will on average make at least $9,000 more annually than people who don’t.
Missouri exchanged the GED for the HiSET because the GED was only offered on a computer and the price was getting too high. The HSE (high school equivalency) diploma will bring you improved employment choices and is also your ticket to further education at university or college. Whereas the GED exam must be done entirely on a computer is the HiSET offered in both a paper-based and a computer-formatted version.
Launching the online HiSET-At-Home testing option
You never had the chance to sit for the five HiSET modules via the internet. But now, we’ve witnessed some interesting developments with the launch of the ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home’ test-taking opportunity. When you decide to take the HiSET exam online at home, a proctor will guide you through your online test-taking experience and will see if everything occurs correctly.
