3. Learn What’s On the Actual HiSET Exam

Essential Education’s certified HiSET practice tests include the five subject areas that are measured on the HiSET exam: mathematics, science, social studies, reading, and writing. The approved practice tests are half the length of the actual tests. They are designed to predict your score on the actual tests and show you what areas you need to brush up on.

The HiSET math practice test focuses on the fundamentals of mathematics, striking a balance of deeper conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and the ability to apply math fundamentals in realistic situations. A variety of item types are used in the test, including multiple-choice, drag-and-drop, hot spot, and fill-in-the-blank.

The HiSET reading test primarily focuses on comprehension because that is the best predictor for test readiness. The test uses a combination of academic and workplace texts. These texts reflect a range of complexity levels.

The HiSET writing practice test measures a candidate’s ability to demonstrate command of a foundational set of conventions of standard English that have been identified as most important for HiSET readiness. This core set of skills includes essential components of grammar, usage, capitalization, and punctuation.

The HiSET science practice test focuses on the fundamentals of science reasoning, striking a balance of deeper conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and the ability to apply these fundamentals in realistic situations.

The HiSET social studies test concentrates on social studies reasoning skills by applying an understanding of concepts, skills in procedures, and fluency of ideas. Using three content areas—life, physical, and earth and space science—the test requires the candidate to apply fundamental skills to realistic situations.
