Effective January 1, 2014, the Montana Office of Public Instruction switched to the new HiSET high school equivalency test developed by ETS (Educational Testing Service). The state formerly partnered with GED Testing Service.

The state's website includes a link to Montana LINCS, which stands for Learn About Montana Adult Basic and Literacy Education. The LINCS site isn't terribly user friendly. If you click on Montana HSE under the graphic in the center of the page, you return to the state page.

If you click on HiSET Resources, you get a bit more info, although it's a little confusing. Click around until you find what you need. If you don't find what you need, return to the state page where contact info is clearly posted in a box in the center of the page.

Be sure to visit the HiSET website for complete test info.
