These two, 42-hour courses are designed to prepare students for the HiSET Tests. Instructional emphasis for the first course is on English language reading and writing. A second course focuses on mathematics. These courses are a fast review, not designed to address needs for in-depth ESOL or ABE instruction. They also do not cover preparation for the Science and Social Studies portions of the HiSET tests.
In order to assess each student’s readiness, a free pre-assessment is required of all students before registering for either of the HiSET Review Courses. This pre-assessment is offered throughout the year on a regular basis. You will be given a score immediately after completing the pre-assessment. If you receive a passing score, you will have the opportunity to sign up for the HiSET Review Course that evening, if you choose.
*Students will not be able to register for the HiSET Review Courses without taking and passing the pre-assessment.
Once the pre-assessment has been completed and the student has received a passing grade, they will be able to register immediately for the HiSET Review Courses. The schedule for the courses are as follows:
HiSET Math Preparation
HiSET English Reading & Writing Preparation
The cost for each of the HiSET Review Courses is $157.00. If a student chooses to take both courses, only one text book will be needed. Community Education staff will be available the night of pre-assessments to assist students with registration for the Review Course. Students who do not receive a passing grade on the pre-assessment will be referred to local tutoring resources and will be able to take the pre-assessment again.
