GED Classes Eureka, California

This page includes an overview of all GED® prep facilities and testing sites in the Eureka, California, region.

At the listed prep sites, you have the chance to get all the support you need to sit for the GED® test confidently. California implemented the now entirely computerized GED exam but also introduced two alternatives, the TASC and HiSET for the purpose of high school equivalency (HSE) testing. For eligibility criteria, check out: GED program in California.

Four GED subtests

The HSE exam covers fundamental knowledge at a level that may be expected of graduating high school students, the GED exam includes four separate subtests in the subject fields of Science, Literacy, Social Studies, and Math. You are given two years to finish the entire GED battery.

More HSE testing options

California additionally introduced two alternative and more affordable high school equivalency exams, the TASC and the HiSET. The GED is only offered on a computer, whereas these two alternatives come in both computer- and paper-based formats. Testing centers decide which exam(s) they will be administrating, so please get in touch with a testing site in your area for specifics.

GED Requirements in California

GED passing score

The GED passing score was adjusted to 145 (down from 150) in January 2016. It appeared that the standard was set at a too high level when compared with what high school seniors must command upon graduation. For more elaborate information go to this post: Lowered GED Score. TASC and HiSET have five subtests that are scored in their own ways.

No online HSE testing

The GED exam is done entirely on a computer, but bear in mind that test-taking is done at official testing centers. The GED, HiSET, and TASC exams are NOT available over the internet. Websites with different information are false. Take also a look at these free practice tests for your HSE exam.

GED alternatives

Now California also offers two other HSE (high school equivalency) testing possibilities, the testing models TASC (developed by CTB/McGraw-Hill), and the HiSET exam (by Educational Testing Service). These alternatives are less expensive than the GED examination, and come not only in a computer-based format (as the new GED), but are also still available on paper. The new GED exam is no longer offered on paper, and this could be challenging for older students who are not used to testing on a computer.

Quite a few states have also introduced these alternatives and some have said goodbye to the GED exam (now developed by giant for-profit publisher Pearson-VUE). The TASC and HiSET come with five separate tests (literacy includes two separate tests on writing and reading), and testing centers have the freedom to decide on which of the high school equivalency exams (or all three) they are using, so please contact a testing near you for specifics.

Online Registration

To register for the GED tests, you must go to GED.com and create your account at MyGED. Here you will find a wealth of information about every possible aspect of the GED exam, as well as job opportunities and school profiles. You will need a current email address and also a credit or debit card. If this is a problem, contact a testing site near you for a pre-paid voucher.

GED.com/MyGED is the place to register for and schedule your tests, and a great aspect of the new GED exam is that you can take (and pay for) one (or more) of the four tests (modules) at the moment you feel comfortable enough to do so.
