HiSET Score Report

Everything you need to know!

The scoring for the HiSET is simplistic. Every question gives one point, which is added to your score with every right answer. Each multiple-choice section gains you a maximum of 20 points, while the essay portion of the test nets only six points total. Your essays will be graded by humans rather than through automated programming, usually by a team of professionals.

A passing grade qualifies as a minimum of 45 cumulative points on the multiple-choice portion (with a minimum of eight points on each individual subsection) and two points for the essay portion. You will be able to see your scores anywhere between six and ten days for the essay portion of the test, and three and five business days after completing the multiple-choice sections. Your HiSET scores are rendered accessible through your account on the test’s official website, meaning you will have to log in to see them. When you receive your HiSET scores, you will find a pair of sets, both of which possess different meanings.

Your Comprehensive Score Report

When you view your HiSET scores, you will see your Comprehensive Score Report first and foremost. This report lists only the best scores you’ve received on each section of the HiSET, and synchronizes with any retakes you do. This score will generally be what you request to be sent off to your institution of choice. The Comprehensive Score Report will let you know not only whether you did well on the HiSET, but the number of sections you have completed to date.

Your Individual Test Report

The Individual Test Report is the secondary part of the HiSET’s scoring and is generally much more informative about your skills. When you look at this section, you will find not only your scores for each individual section of the test, but also a full report accompanying the score. These reports will tell you whether you have passed that particular section and what this means with respect to how prepared you are for the workplace or higher education.

5 star review

"Dr. Donnelly is a wonderful teacher. He is quick to pinpoint weaknesses and, in many cases, turn them into strengths. He always has a structured lesson plan and pertinent homework assignments and puts aside time in the lesson to go over "trouble problems" from the previous lesson. I highly recommend taking a prep course with him. His patience, humor, and kindheartedness makes an otherwise uncomfortable standardized test almost enjoyable."

"Dr. Donnelly tutored my son. My son learned a few steps to help him solve the problems faster and correctly. Every lesson helped my son feel confident. My son constantly talks about how Dr. Donnelly has taught him skills that he is able to use in his classes at school. Dr. Donnelly was also very good at being able to work around a person's schedule. I highly recommend him, he is a great tutor. Thank you Dr. Donnelly!"
