This post includes a full listing of GED® prep class locations and test facilities in the Canton region. Ohio offers two options to adults looking to earn a high school equivalency (HSE) diploma, the HiSET® and GED tests.
Both exams can be taken online and at state-certified test centers. For more details about the newly launched GED and HiSET online options, check the bottom of this post.
HSE testing takes place at a level similar to what HS seniors must know upon graduation.
The GED exam is fully computer-based while the HiSET can be taken on a computer or on paper.
The GED (General Education Development) has four individual subject tests that may be taken separately.
The four testing fields are Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
The HiSET has individual reading and writing tests, so five overall, that can be taken separately as well.
The Adult Education program of Ohio is called ASPIRE.
