School officials urging people to take graduation equivalency test before it's too late

The new high school equivalency test in Missouri is only expected to get tougher, so officials are urging people not to wait to take the HiSet.

This is the first year the HiSet is replacing the GED.  The biggest change is that the test is no longer pencil and paper. It's now fully computerized.  The only local testing facility is at the Hannibal Career and Technical center.  Director Roger McGregor says there's a test every other month.  The next one is in June.

"As of April 2015, the test will increase to the normal HiSet level, which will make it more difficult. I would encourage anyone that's in that process of thinking about getting tested, getting their high school equivalency, to go ahead, come see us. Let's get you going, let's get you signed up and get you tested this year," McGregor said.

The cost for the test is $95.  You can sign up online or call the Hannibal School District for help signing up or taking some prep classes.
