- Practice tests are intended to complement your preparation and classroom instruction. They will not fully prepare students for the actual HiSET exams.
- Each practice test is approximately half the length of the HiSET exam and may not represent every type of item on the exam.
- The “Well prepared” category scores are not indicators of college and career readiness. They are meant to help provide guidance on the likelihood of a student passing the HiSET exam. Visit ets.org/tc_staff to learn how the HiSET exam reflects college and career readiness.
