On January 1, 2014, the GED test, formerly used by all 50 United States, changed to a new computer-based test, and the door opened for other testing companies to offer similar high school equivalency tests. There are now three possible tests:

  1. GED Testing Service (partner in the past)
  2. HiSET Program, developed by ETS (Educational Testing Service)
  3. Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC, developed by McGraw Hill)

Each state had the choice of staying with GED Testing Service or switching to one of the others. Finding information for your state can be difficult since various state agencies handle adult education state to state. It isn't always the department of education, as you might think.

So we found the links for you. Click on your state and you'll find a brief explanation of which test your state chose, and find links to the appropriate web pages.
