What Are the High School Equivalency Exams?

Even though you have not finished high school, you have probably gained knowledge and skills through experiences, reading, and job training. The high school equivalency exams are designed to measure the important knowledge and skills, usually learned during four years of high school, that you may have obtained in a different manner.

The Oklahoma legislature passed House Bill 1687 and Gov. Mary Fallin signed the bill into law in June 2015 allowing all federally approved testing companies to offer high school equivalency exams in Oklahoma. To date, three tests are offered in Oklahoma: the GED, HiSET and TASC. Each test gives the examinee the ability to receive an Oklahoma high school diploma.


Wes Watkins Technology Center is a testing site for the HiSET Exam through our Assessment Center.
