"The HiSET program will allow candidates to demonstrate that they have attained the academic knowledge and proficiency equivalent to those of a high school graduate," said Catherine Welch, Director of Statewide Testing Programs and Professor of Educational Measurement and Statistics at the University of Iowa. "Moreover, information gathered from the assessment will help identify the areas where candidates are career- and college-ready."The HiSET program will be available in two phases. The Phase 1 HiSET test is designed to be compatible with current instructional materials used for high school equivalency assessment and covers five core areas: (1) Language Arts–Reading, (2) Language Arts–Writing, (3) Mathematics, (4) Science and (5) Social Studies. The first administration of Phase 1 is scheduled for January 2014.
