The High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) has replaced the General Education Development (GED) Diploma as Maine’s High School Equivalency as of January 2014. The paper-based version of the assessment will continue through 2014 with programs transitioning to HiSET’s computer-based version in 2015.
The HiSET consists of the following five subtests: Language Arts Reading, Language Arts Writing, Science, Social Studies, and Mathematics. All of the tests are multiple choice with the exception of the essay portion of the Language Arts Writing Test. A passing score on each subject test is a scaled score of 8 out of 20, but learners must achieve a total scaled score of 45 to successfully achieve their high school equivalency diploma.
