High School Equivalency (HSE)

As of January 2014, Indiana has adopted a new High School Equivalency (HSE) test. An expert panel of representatives from the Indiana Department of Correction (DOC), the Indiana Department of Education (DOE) and DWD were involved in evaluating all proposals offered, culminating in the selection of CTB/McGraw-Hill's TASC Test. In addition, Ivy Tech and the Indiana Association of Adult and Continuing Education provided expert analysis of the available testing options.

Free HSE Testing for HIP Plus Members

DWD has partnered with Anthem BlueCross BlueShield to provide HIP Plus members with free vouchers that cover the cost of the Indiana HSE test.   We encourage you to make an appointment with your local testing center within the next 30 days or sooner. Bring the voucher to your local testing center.  You can find a testing center in your area by visiting Indiana.tasctest.com or by calling Anthem Member Services at 1-866-408-6131 (TTY 711).  When you go to the testing center you should bring:

  • The HSE voucher
  • Valid proof of ID, such as valid driver’s license, valid passport, military IDs, or another form of government-issued (national or foreign) ID that shows name, address, date of birth, signature and photograph.
  • If ID does not list your address, bring proof of residency.  Examples include a utility bill, rental agreement, piece of mail or other similar form of proof that show you have lived in Indiana for at least 30 days.

The testing center will then enter a voucher code upon registration and Anthem Blue Cross BlueShield HIP Plus will cover all test costs.
