Instructor
Douglas Garcia
Senior Director, High School Equivalency Test (HiSET®) at Educational Testing Service (ETS)

Description
In February 2016, Pennsylvania approved the HiSET® as an alternative exam for Pennsylvanians to attain their high school equivalency.  This means that students now have two exam options: GED® or HiSET®.   Built on the College and Career Readiness Standards, the HiSET® exam gives out-of-school youth and adults an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and earn a state-issued high school equivalency credential. The exam features paper- and computer-based formats, in English and Spanish. This session will provide an overview on all ETS HiSET® Program updates and new teaching resources. Information about new partnerships with preparation providers such as Essential Education will also be highlighted.  During this session, participants will gain an understanding of the content of the test and will receive up-to-date information regarding the HiSET® informational website and free instructional materials, as well as participate in a question and answer session.

The session is facilitated by Douglas Garcia, Senior Director, High School Equivalency Test (HiSET®) at Educational Testing Service (ETS).  Mr. Garcia is the HiSET® representative for Pennsylvania.
