Posted here are all GED® prep class locations and testing sites in the Dallas, Texas, region.
Texas uses multiple options for high school equivalency (HSE) testing, the GED, TASC, and HiSET exams.
HSE testing is for persons who did not graduate from high school and gives them the chance to obtain an equivalent diploma.
The GED exam has four subtests in these fields: Language, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
TASC and HiSET exams have one extra test because the section literacy has separate writing and reading subtests.
The GED subtests can be taken separately within a 2-year time frame. The TASC and HiSET subtests may also be dealt with individually.
The GED exam is fully computer-based while the TASC and HiSET are offered in both paper- and computer-based formats.
Passing the Texas HSE exam will result in far better job options and doors of colleges and universities will open up.

The GED exam consists of four tests that assess a candidate’s knowledge of literacy, social studies, science, and math. Getting ready for these tests can be quite overwhelming thus it is important to enroll into a GED class, take up an online course like available at no cost on this website, or get the books that will help you get ready for the tests. For eligibility criteria visit HSE Testing in Texas.
Effective GED preparation normally requires motivation, perseverance, and planning. Bear in mind that the GED, TASC, and HiSET exams are not offered online. If a website offers the HSE exam (or the diploma) via the internet, you know that the site is false. The Texas HSE exam will have to be taken by you personally at a designated HSE test center. The TASC and HiSET exams contain separate reading and writing tests, so five overall.
How to get started
For starters, it is important to make sure you identify the subjects you will feel you can score the highest marks and start studying this area first. Studies have shown that if you start out with an enjoyable and successful experience, your brain will be prepared and you will feel more motivated to tackle the other difficult subject areas. Your career possibilities will be much better when you pass the Texas HSE test.
Your school district board may offer options to learn for the GED exam and any student of any age may qualify as long as you meet the minimum age and other requirements. Contact one of the locations listed in the directory above by phone or email. Check out also local job fairs and business or education events and once you’ve completed your GED diploma, you also qualify for a college education.
Many schools offer financial aid so what could hold you back to register for their academic education and training. Many family support agencies additionally offer ESL and GED courses so donate some time to learning and get ready for a more human and brighter future. You deserve it! Check also our GED news pages and this post that links to all U.S. GED schools and prep locations.
GED and career
Earning your GED diploma gives you access to limitless job opportunities/choices. Most universities and colleges accept the GED diploma just like a high school diploma meaning that it can really help you out when it comes to giving you a great career that will help change your life for the better.
The GED is exclusively available on a computer while the TASC and HiSET can be done both on a computer or in a paper-and-pencil format. So sign up with MyGED (on the website GED.com) and check out the main content to learn all about GED testing, what you can de as an employee to be more successful and map out your route towards a better life and more financial security. Online learning can be a great help for students who are good at studying independently but to sit for the HiSET, GED, or TASC exam, you must report to an official Texas testing facility. Online testing is not possible. Special arrangements and accommodations are available to those who need that.
GED passing score
The GED passing score was adjusted from 150 to 145 on each sub-test. Read the full article here. Scores are measured on a scale from 100 to 200. Below Passing: 100-144; Passing Score (HS equivalency): 145-164; College-Ready Score: 165-174; and College-Ready + College Credit Score: 175-200. HiSET and TASC exams come with their own scoring methods.
The GED – what’s new
In the United States, we see approximately 40 million men and women who do not hold a high school diploma. Completing the GED (General Education Development) examination will open up doors to colleges and universities, and strengthen the chances for higher income and better careers.
Revamping the GED exam was absolutely needed to make sure the test came in line again with university requirements and industry practices. The GED test has now a computer-formatted system and is far better directed towards educating skills and knowledge required by employers. Students now become better prepared to perform in the modern-day employment market.
No longer are there so many multiple-choice questions, the GED exam is more essay-based. This way test takers will become better ready to follow courses at universities and colleges successfully. The GED exam allows you to take one module/test when you are ready to do so, no need to prepare for everything at the same time. Your test results will be valid for a period of two years!
Can I take the Texas HSE exam online?
No. Although the GED exam became “digitalized”, you still must come to an official HSE test site to sit for the GED, TASC, or HiSET exam in person. Online information of a different nature is fraudulent. Online registration has become easier, and now students can see their scores right after taking the exam, in the former paper-based situation they needed to sit idle for two or three weeks before they knew they passed or not.
*) Dallas Public Library
In Dallas, 25 percent of all adults didn’t complete their high school education, and the Dallas Public Library contributes to changing this and has opened a brand new HSE testing site in the Library’s main downtown facility. This is actually the first HSE testing center inside a Texas library.
The Library’s new testing site is located on the 3rd floor of the Dallas Library building and should help a lot of people earn their secondary education degree which will lead to better jobs, higher pay, and allows for a college education. The Dallas Library HSE testing center has a capacity of 3,000 GED test-takers every year and the library could be created through a donation of $100,000 by gas provider Atmos Energy. The new Dallas Library HSE test center has been open now for a couple of years.
