Good news for adult learners looking to take their high school equivalency exam. According to the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development (TDLWD), state residents may now take the test from home via a new online program, HiSET Exam at Home. This program makes the test accessible to adult learners while many testing centers are closed due to COVID-19.

The online exams are identical to HiSET exams taken in physical testing centers in terms of content, format, on-screen experience, and scoring. Each of the features test takers experience in testing centers, such as the ability to preview, skip questions, review, and change answers, are available with the online exam.

The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development’s HiSET Voucher Program covers all costs associated with the exams. To receive a voucher from a local Adult Education program, a test taker must be a Tennessee resident and demonstrate test preparedness through a qualifying practice test.

Moore County adult learners (as well as those in Bedford, Coffee, Franklin, and Lincoln counties) will need to contact the South Central Tennessee Workforce Alliance at 866-801-4723 to get registered for the test. Test takers must be at least 18 years old and have access to a desktop or laptop computer. The exam can not be taken on Chromebooks, tablets, or mobile phones.
