On this page, we’ve listed all GED® prep facilities and testing centers in the Galveston area. Texas is using the computer-formatted GED exam for HSE (high school equivalency) testing.
The GED exam can be taken online or at one of Texas’ certified test centers.
The Texas HSE test offers individuals who didn’t complete high school the chance to secure an equivalent credential.
The GED exam measures a student’s proficiency at the same level as may be expected of a high school graduate.
The GED test is a set of four individual subtests that may be completed one subtest at a time.
These four subtests (also referred to as modules) are in Social Studies, Math, Science, and Literacy.

Introducing online GED testing
It used to be that the GED exam was exclusively available at official, state-approved Texas high school equivalency (HSE) test centers. Online testing was never possible and your personal appearance was required. Well, this has changed now with the introduction of an online proctored GED testing option.
If you want to learn more about the new online proctored GED test, visit Introducing an online proctored GED test.

The HSE program is geared towards adults who have not completed their common high school education. The program allows them to acquire a diploma that is all over North America regarded as equivalent to a standard high school credential by institutions of higher education and employers.
The Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency (TxCHSE) is your ticket to continued education and is sure to result in far better employment options.
So there is, again, one high school equivalency test available in Texas, the GED (General Education Development). After successfully taking the four GED tests, students will be awarded the Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency.
