Indiana Selects New High School Equivalency Credential Exam
The Indiana Department of Workforce Development has chosen a high school equivalency assessment that will replace the General Educational Development (GED) test. The new assessment will ensure Indiana offers a high school equivalency (HSE) test that matches employer demand and is both affordable and accessible. The new test, which all Indiana providers began utilizing in 2014, is aligned to College and Career Readiness Standards. It will gradually increase in rigor to better meet industry demand. In order to maintain accessiblity, the new exam will continue to be offered in both paper and computer-based formats. Students who successfully pass the HSE test will obtain an Indiana High School Equivalency Diploma. Harrison County Lifelong Learning is the test center for Region 10, serving Harrison, Crawford, Clark, Floyd, Scott and Washington Counties. Please visit the High School Equivalency page for detailed eligibility information.
