Online Practice Tests

Take free, full-length practice tests online with Learning Express. Set up an account with your Framingham Library card number and a valid e-mail address. You do not have to be in the library to use Learning Express; you may access it anywhere you have an internet connection.

After registering, go to the top left corner of the homepage, and below the logo click where it says “All Centers.” Then, click on “High School Equivalency Center,” and once the page opens type “HiSET” in the search box. Here you will find all the resources available on Learning Express to prepare for the exam.

You will see multiple practice tests for each of the five sections of the HiSET: Language Arts (Reading and Writing,) Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. You may take the practice tests timed or un-timed. You may also save tests and go back to them later.

There is also an Exam Preparation Tutorial that will assess your strengths and weaknesses so you will be able to get an idea of what areas you should focus on when studying.

If you have questions about using this eResource, do not hesitate to contact us!
