High School Equivalency Testing Takes a Positive Turn

High School Equivalency Choices Approved by the State of Colorado

VANESSABy Vanessa Montana – CEO Director of Operations

In spring of 2016, Colorado approved two high school equivalency (HSE) exams in addition to the GED. This is a result of Pearson Vue becoming the sole owner of the GED in 2014. The two additional exams are TASC*, owned by McGraw Hill, and HiSET, owned by ETS. All state approved HSE exams are recognized by post-secondary institutions and employers as valid proof of high school equivalency completion.

The additional HSE exams will provide students the option to take a paper-pencil version, which will make the exam more accessible to CEO students. In addition, CEO won a grant through the Bard Foundation to fund on-site TASC testing. This will allow students to take the test in the facility in lieu of being sent to a testing center outside the facility. We are very excited to have the opportunity to offer more accessible options to CEO students.

We hope to assist all HSE students in earning a diploma in order to allow them the ability to enter post-secondary education, and explore career options that are meaningful and self-sustaining.
