HiSET Reading and Writing


with Phil Wormuth

Calendar Current session started Sep 11, 2023

HiSET Reading and Writing: fine tune your reading and writing skills for both of these HiSET tests. 

The HiSET Reading test includes a variety of non-fiction, informational texts.  Test questions will focus on reading comprehension, interpretation, and analysis.  In class, we target building skills for identifying main ideas, support details, organizational styles, and vocabulary.  Class discussions will help you develop skills in interpreting different writing styles.

The HiSET Writing test requires you to write an essay and answer multiple choice questions centered on editing and revising sentences.  The multiple-choice section includes spelling, grammar, punctuation, and sentence organization.

Whether you think of yourself of a beginner writer or an accomplished writer, we can help you fine tune your writing for HiSET success. We focus on the writing process: developing your thoughts, creating a draft, editing, and revising.  As you edit your writing, you will also review rules of writing for the multiple-choice section of the test.

We will also talk about test taking strategies and overcoming test anxiety.

More details on the HiSET Reading test: 65 minutes - this is the shortest HiSET test. There are 50 multiple-choice questions.

More details on the HiSET Writing test: 120 minutes (2 hours) to complete 60 multiple choice questions and write an argumentative essay.  The essay requires you to respond to a question (giving your opinion) comparing two articles.

Learn new math skills and brush up on the basics in order to pass the HiSET Math test.  Work with your instructor to target any gaps in your math knowledge and learn new skills.  The HiSET math includes: number operations, measurement, geometry, data analysis, probability, and algebra. In addition to math skills, we focus on test taking skills and breaking down math and test anxiety. 

A little about the HiSET math test:
The HiSET math test is 50 multiple choice questions; you have 90 minutes to complete the test.  We provide a calculator, a formula sheet, and scrap paper and pencils.  You can take the HiSET on paper or on the computer.  Most people prefer taking the test on computer. You receive your score immediately on the computer. It can take up to two weeks to get your scores if you take the test on paper.

All students take practice tests before taking the official HiSET tests; there is no cost for taking the HiSET in Maine.
