Additionally, Ohio welcomed an alternative option for this purpose, the HiSET exam.

The GED® and HiSET® are available online and at official Ohio HSE (High School Equivalency) test centers.

The exams are for persons who quit high school prematurely and wish to earn an equivalent credential.

Some students do better on the GED exam if they prepare under the guidance of an instructor at one of the brick-and-mortar sites listed below. Others may do perfectly well while using an online program. Our website’s online free GED classes and practice tests allow you to decide which method fits you best.

If online learning is right for you, we suggest you go ahead with Onsego Online GED Prep, a comprehensive course that GED Testing Service, the official GED test publisher, recognizes as “Totally GED Test-Aligned.”

The GED (General Education Development) exam includes four independent subtests in

  • English Language Arts
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies

The four GED subtests can be taken one at a time and in any order you wish.

The HiSET has five tests that may also be taken separately. The Language part is split up into reading and writing subtests.

It used to be that online HSE testing was not an option. Testing needed to be done at an official Ohio testing site. This has now changed with the introduction of online GED and HiSET exams. Read more below.

Ohio’s Adult Basic Education program is named ASPIRE.

Online GED and HiSET Tests Welcomed

In earlier days, to get hold of your Ohio high school equivalency (HSE) degree, your personal appearance at one of Ohio’s state-approved testing facilities was required. Recently, however, there were some interesting developments with the introduction of online HiSET and GED testing options.

For more information about the recently launched HiSET online test, check out this post: ‘Welcoming the online HiSET test,’ and for more information about the online proctored GED exam, visit this page: ‘Introducing the online GED test.’
