General Educational Development (GED)
Core subject content areas of math, science, social studies, language arts, writing and computer skills are presented in engaging, relevant, and motivating learning experiences. Students draw faster connections to the information and retain more of what they learn. As students work through the recommended lessons, the GED Academy advances the student through content designed for progressively higher NRS functional levels through grade 12.
Accelerate student learning with a personalized lesson plan tailored to the student’s knowledge level. Students become familiar with how to answer interactive questions which are randomized so students can retake the test. Practice is timed just like the real GED test and using the same weighting to score results. For each missed question, the assessment prescribes a mini lesson plan of combined GED Academy and Essential Skills Practice workbook lessons.
As an option, the RLA Writing Practice Test Extended Response can be scored by Essential Education’s professional graders. Real human graders give accurate scores and actionable feedback to help your students improve their writing skills.
Also, our GED practice tests are available in Spanish. Accurately assess the readiness of your students who will take the GED test in Spanish, as well as evaluate your students language skills versus academic skills to accurately focus your instruction.
High School Equivalency Test (HiSET)
Designed specifically for adult education students, the HiSET Academy features over 200 hours of lessons in math, reading, writing, science, and social studies. Because academic backgrounds differ widely, the HiSET Academy content empathetically supports all learning styles. Students learn faster and retain more knowledge by connecting with a learning ecosystem. It’s like having a personal tutor.
After working through the pre-assessment and personalized learning plan, students take the built-in practice test evaluating depth of knowledge. A timer emulates actual test conditions, but can be turned off for ADA test takers. Randomized questions allow students to retake until they achieve proficiency. Scores are converted into a percentile graph to show student proficiency level by subject. Based on student responses, specific HiSET Academy lessons and Essential Skills Workbook practice are prescribed to help students improve.
The instructor dashboard provides complete visibility of student progress and shows instructors exactly where a student needs help. Instructors can view reports by student or by class and see which questions a student missed, how many attempts were made to answer a question, and how much time was spent on each task. The learning management platform reduces administrative tasks and optimizes time for teaching by automating class communications and enrollment management.
