    GED ® Update

    Since 1942 the GED® was the ONLY test that lead to a  High School Equivalency Certificate.
    In March 2014 the CA State Board of Education approved TWO NEW exams to
    replace the GED®, the HiSET® and the TASC®.
    LAUSD now offers the HiSET® (High School Equivalency Test).
    If you pass the HiSET® you will earn your
    California High School Equivalency Certificate.
    Visit the following websites for more information about the two new 
    High School Equivalency Tests.
      TASC®  http://www.tasctest.com/test-takers.html

    These websites have many resources for test takers. Most are FREE!

    Be sure to check out the practice tests and study guides.
