GED Classes Cranston, Rhode Island

Listed here are all GED® prep facilities and testing locations in the Cranston area.

Rhode Island is using the computerized GED exam for its HSE (high school equivalency) assessment program.

The HSE program is for people who, for some reason, dropped out of high school and gives them the chance to earn an equivalent degree.

The GED (General Education Development) exam has four separate subtests in Literacy, Social Studies, Science, and Math.

You can take these subtests, or modules, one at a time as long as you complete the entire GED battery within two years.

GED acceptance

When you have successfully taken all four individual GED subtests you’ll be awarded the Rhode Island High School Equivalency Diploma, a credential that’s nationally recognized and accepted in the same way as a common high school diploma by employers and institutions of higher education. Please note that online GED testing is NO option. You’ll have to show up at an authorized testing site and sir for the four GED subtests in person. The tests are modular and you’ll need to pass all four tests within two years to earn your diploma.

If you want to see if the GED track is something for you and whether you qualify, check out this post: GED testing in Rhode Island. You may also be interested in this post that has links to all U.S. GED prep sites and testing facilities. The Rhode Island cost for the entire exam is $120, or $30 per subtest. In 2014, however, the state passed legislation to pick up that tab for low-income RI residents.

Check out this GED News post if you want to learn all about the GED passing score that was reduced in early 2016. It was decided to lower it by five points to 145 on each of the four GED subtests. It was clearly set too high when the new GED program was rolled out across the nation in 2014.

GED preparation

What you need to do is sign up for one of the above listed GED prep classes or get a few books from your local library and study on your own. Online classes are another good option, especially for people living in remote portions of the state. and whatever preparation you take, make sure you will receive our GED certificate! You will boost your own income, but on top of that you will improve your loved ones’ lives and help the economy as well. Becoming a GED graduate is a great achievement and starting with your preparation is the first important step on the road towards a better life.

One test at a time

At the new GED exam, you don’t need to take the entire battery in a row anymore. You can take one of the four tests (also called modules) when you are sufficiently prepared as long as you complete the entire GED battery within two years!
