You’ve probably heard of the GED test for students that for whatever reason were unable to complete high school to grant them a High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED). The HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) is an assessment to prove a HSED candidate has skills comparable to those of a high school graduate. It’s actually a series of five tests (writing, science, math, literature and the arts, and social studies). The state of Iowa made the switch. Kirkwood Community College has been using it for awhile, but I think it’s worth a reminder.
