“The 2014 students who have passing GED scores may combine these tests with HiSET to earn a Wyoming High School Equivalency Certificate,” shared Diane McQueen, Director of the EWC Adult Learning Center.

Each of the 3 tests will utilize test items that are aligned to the college and career readiness standards.  Adult Basic Education centers prefer the HiSET test as it is affordable for students.

“Over the past 50 years GED has become synonymous with high school equivalency in much the same way as Kleenex is to tissue.  But this is a misconception.  The HiSET, GED, and TASC are all tests that students can take to earn a high school equivalency certificate.  In 2013 the Wyoming State Legislature changed the law so that students could have multiple pathways to this certificate,” added JoEllen Keigley, Director of the EWC Testing and Career Center.
