The purpose of the ETS High School Equivalency Test (HiSET™) is to certify a candidate’s attainment of academic knowledge and skills equivalent to those of a high school graduate. HiSET™ scores will identify those candidates who have performed at a level consistent with high school equivalency. Information from the HiSET program also will help identify areas in which candidates are career- and college-ready, as well as areas in which additional preparation may be needed.
Candidates will be tested in five (5) core areas: Language Arts – Reading, Language Arts – Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Descriptions of each of these five tests are contained in this document.
HiSET™ Practice Tests allow the candidates to view sample content and item types and provide them with general information about their level of preparation for taking the operational form.
HiSET testing is available in both English and Spanish.
