This article includes an overview of all GED® prep locations and test centers in the Ashtabula area. Ohio is offering two options for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program, the GED and HiSET® exams.
The HiSET and GED may be taken online or at one of Ohio’s official HSE testing facilities. For more information about online HiSET and GED testing, check below at the bottom of this page.
HSE testing is for individuals who don’t hold a high school diploma and offers them the chance to earn an equivalent credential.
The GED (General Education Development) exam has four individual modules (subtests) in math, science, literacy, and social studies.
You can complete these four subtests one at a time. You don’t have to sit for the entire GED battery in one take.
HiSET testing is done through five subtests that can be taken separately as well. The Literacy section comes with separate writing and reading tests.
The HiSET exam can be taken on a computer or in a paper-and-pencil format while the GED is entirely computer-formatted.
The Adult Education program in Ohio is called ASPIRE.

The GED exam – Who is it for?
The GED program is developed to help grown-ups improve their employment prospects and to offer them the possibility to get into an institution of higher education.
In the US there are many millions of people who, for whatever reason, never finished high school, and the GED program is mainly created for them, and completing the GED test successfully gives them the chance to build a better future. Every year around half a million people complete the GED exam, and you could be among them as well.
The four GED tests
The GED exam includes four subject field tests that are timed as follows: Science (90 minutes), Social studies (70 minutes), Mathematics (115 minutes), and Language Arts (150 minutes).
Many multiple choice answers have gone and test subjects now involve more essay-style answering. Individuals thinking about sitting for the GED exam really must study and prepare well.
The HiSET exam has five subtests that, like the GED subtests, may be taken individually. These five tests cover the subject fields of Social Studies, Science, Math, Language Reading, and Language Writing.
The certificate that you receive upon passing one of these three exams is recognized as equivalent to a regular high school diploma by educational institutions and employers throughout the United States.
