DES MOINES – Iowa has once again earned the top spot nationally for passing rates on the high school equivalency exam known as HiSET.

Over the past several years, according to Iowa Department of Education, the state has consistently been a leader on the national stage for high school equivalency passing rate success. The HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) is an assessment of skills and knowledge comparable to those of a high school graduate.

The latest national data shows that 96.3 percent of Iowans pursuing a high school equivalency diploma through HiSET passed the exam in 2021, compared to 77 percent nationally.

This is an increase from 95.9 percent reported for Iowa in 2020.

By taking the HiSET, a student can earn a state-issued high school equivalency credential allowing for career advancement, join the military, begin a training program or continue education.
