high school equivalency exams

The changing landscape of high school equivalency assessments

In keeping with the mission of the Ohio Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) Professional Development Network (PDN), the PDN team has been building expertise in the content, complexity, and format of the new high school equivalency (HSE) exams in preparation for the creation and delivery of professional development and resource support for Ohio’s adult education professionals as they prepare students to succeed in achieving the updated credentials. Increased demand for testing opportunities, organizational reshuffling, and new standards have led to a more competitive marketplace for publishers and testing companies.
