GED Classes Davenport, Iowa

Last Updated on April 11, 2024.

Posted here are all GED (in Iowa: HiSET) prep classes and test facilities in the Davenport region. Iowa is using the HiSET for high school equivalency testing purposes.

HiSET testing is available online and at certified HiSET testing facilities.

The assessment gives persons who didn’t graduate high school another option to acquire an equivalent diploma.

There are five modular HiSET® tests that assess a candidate’s proficiency in these subjects:

  • Literacy Reading
  • Literacy Writing
  • Social Studies
  • Mathematics
  • Science

The exam assesses proficiency at a level that high school seniors must command upon graduation.

The HiSET exam is available in both a computer-based and a paper-and-pencil format.

It doesn’t matter when you left school

In the past, the HiSET (just like the GED® exam) wasn’t available over the Internet. Testing needed to be done at one of Iowa’s official test centers.

That has changed, however, as the online HiSET Exam At Home was introduced. Learn more below.

Online HiSET-at-Home Testing Option

In the past, HiSET testing, like the GED, was not possible via the Internet. To acquire an Iowa high school equivalency degree, your personal appearance at an official HiSET testing site was required.

Well, this has now changed with the arrival of an online HiSET testing option, the “HiSET-At-Home” exam. An online proctor guides you with the testing process and checks if everything happens in line with strict regulations. Read more here: Online HiSET-At-Home Exam.
