HSE Monthly Update June 2020
|To:||Program Directors, and Adult Education Teachers in Community Adult Learning Centers and Correctional Institutions|
|From:||Wyvonne Stevens-Carter, Adult Education State Director|
|Date:||June 10, 2020|
GED® and HiSET® intend to begin remote proctored testing. GED® has piloted the process in five states and will begin nationwide testing "before mid-June." HiSET has announced that it will launch its remote-proctored testing nationally "sometime before the end of June."
Both exams require desktop or laptop computers. Chromebooks are not suitable for this type of testing. All computers must have video and audio capabilities and must pass a system test before candidates will be allowed to register.
GED® will not have a Spanish language version and candidates must score 145 or better on the GED Ready (GED® Official Practice Test) as a prerequisite to registration. Testers will not be able to retest remotely.
HiSET® will have a Spanish language version, no pretest will be required, and remote retesting will be allowed (up to two retests per subtest in a calendar year).
Pricing and additional information will be found at GED® and The HiSET Exam.
