Missouri to use new high school equivalency test beginning 2014

Jun 12, 2013

Missourians wanting to earn their high school equivalency certificate will need to pass a new test beginning January first. The new exam, called HiSET, will replace the current GED test. Sarah Potter is a spokesperson with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. She said the state’s current contract for GED testing was due to expire at the end of this year.

Potter says the state evaluated several competing bids based on the quality of testing, price, and whether the testing was computer based. HiSET will cost a maximum of $95 to take.
