Our Programs - HiSET Programs - The Long Beach School for Adults



About the Tests:

  • On March 13, 2014, the State Board of Education (SBE) approved the use of three high school equivalency tests. The approved tests are the General Educational Development Test (GED) provided by the GED Testing Service (GEDTS), the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) provided by Educational Testing Service, and the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) provided by CTB/McGraw-Hill.

  • The California Department of Education (CDE) is currently working with each vendor to negotiate a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). Local testing centers will have the option to offer one or more of these tests and test takers will have the ability to take a test in paper-based format or computer-based format.

  • The HiSET is now available at LBSA! We offer the HiSET in paper-based form.
