Indiana High School Equivalency (HSE)

The HSE is an alternative for earning a high school diploma in Indiana. An HSE Diploma can be earned after completing a test based on five subject areas (math, reading, writing, science and social studies). Download the Indiana HSE Brochure. Practice tests are available at Testing and Education Resource Center. (From your personal computer, you'll need to log in with your library card number.) If you have specific questions about the HSE dial 2-1-1 to connect with a navigatoror or visit Connect2Help. (NOTE: This diploma used to be called the GED or TASC.)


Resources for Teachers

We have compiled resources on Teaching a Class From Home? We Can Help we hope will help you deliver engaging teachable moments remotely. We are going to keep working on the information shared on this page and update it as new resources are acquired. We know that finding e-books and audiobooks a classroom of students can all read or listen to at the same time is a challenge. To help you solve this problem we have searched for picture books, chapter books, novels, and non-fiction that are available for a whole class to read at the same time.
