GED Classes Akron, Ohio

In this post, you can find a full listing of GED® prep classes and test sites in the Akron region. Ohio uses two options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED and HiSET®.

The GED and HiSET exams can be dealt with online or at one of Ohio’s official HSE test centers.

The HSE test offers people who did not graduate high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.

GED testing is done entirely computer-based while the HiSET is offered both on-paper and on-computer.

The GED has four individual subtests in literacy, math, science, and social studies that may be completed separately.

The HiSET includes five tests as there are two literacy tests (writing and reading). These subtests may also be taken separately.

In earlier days, testing had to be done at an official Ohio HSE testing center. Online GED or HiSET testing was not possible!

But recently, there were some interesting developments resulting in online HiSET and GED testing options. read more below.

Ohio’s Adult Education program is called ASPIRE.
