New Landscape, New Considerations
• TASC, GED or HiSET: all tests emphasize the need for deeper learning and more
rigorous assessment of college and career readiness.
• Multiple choices in HSE exams present challenges in implementation and
preparation for programs and instructors.
• Most promising models are designed with a career credential as an explicit goal,
linked to an integrated pathway.
