Missouri's current high school equivalency test was developed by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and is called the HiSET®. The cost of the test battery is $95. This includes payment of $10 per test in each of five test content areas ($50 total), $10 as a state registration fee, and $7 per test in each of five test content areas ($35 total) to cover the costs of administering the test at MAC. Examinees buying a battery do not have to complete the entire battery at one time; each subtest (content area) can be taken separately. Subtests (content areas) include Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading, and Writing.
Purchasing the battery allows individuals to test three times in each content area during a 12-month period. Examinees not passing the first time can retake any or all subtests (content areas) up to two more times within the 12-month period by paying only an additional $7-per-subtest fee (to cover the costs of administering the test at MAC). Note: Buying the HiSET battery allows for two additional testing attempts in each content area for retest cost of $7 to cover the cost of administering the test. Buying subtests individually also costs $10 per content area but extra attempts on subtests are not included when purchased individually.
