The HiSET® exam is one of three tests U.S. states and territories use to measure high school equivalency skills. The General Educational Development (GED®) and the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™) are the other options. Some states offer only one of these tests. Other states offer all three tests and let you decide which one you wish to take.
