Online GED Testing

GED testing via the Internet is now an option as well. In the past, students had to show up in person at an official Alabama test center if they wanted to earn their high school equivalency degree.

Well, that has now changed. GED Testing Service has introduced an online version of the GED exam that uses an online proctor to monitor the test-taking process. For more information, go to this post: ‘Online proctored GED testing.’
