GED Classes Glendale, California

Listed on this page are all GED® prep facilities and test centers in and around Glendale.

California is using the computer-formatted GED test for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.

Additionally, California welcomed two alternative HSE tests, the HiSET and TASC, which are offered on-paper and on-computer.

The GED exam comes with four separate modules (or subtests) in Social Studies, Science, Math, and Literacy.

These four tests must be passed within a 2-year period of time. This counts only for the GED!

The TASC and HiSET exams include five subject tests. Their Literacy section has separate writing and reading tests.

Testing is done at one of California’s state-designated testing sites. Online HSE testing is not possible.

How challenging is the GED actually?

GED acceptance

The GED (General Education Development) program (and also the alternatives HiSET and TASC) supports adults without a high school diploma to earn a credential that is equivalent to a regular high school diploma. The diploma will improve their employment prospects and allows for continued education at institutions of higher education.

GED scoring

The GED passing score was reduced to 145 per individual test (down from 150) in early 2016. If you want to learn more, check out this GED Passing Score Changes article. These exams are scored in different ways. For eligibility criteria go to GED California qualification requirements.

Online testing is NO option

Please be aware that the GED, TASC, and HiSET exams are not available online. You must appear in person at an official testing site and take the tests in person. Websites that have a different story are run by con artists. There is NO online high school equivalency testing. Online-bought documents have no value and will definitely not be accepted by schools or employers!

Four GED subject tests

The GED exam consists of four individual subtests (nodules) in these academic fields: Science, Literacy, Social Studies, and Math. Now you have the option to sit for one of the subtests (modules) when you’re ready to do so, but you must complete the entire battery within two years. The TASC and HiSET are not modular and are scored in a different way than the GED.

California GED alternatives

Since January 2014, there are two more alternatives available for California residents to acquire their high school equivalency (HSE) diploma. The state approved the HiSET and the TASC assessment systems to be used for that purpose, and testing sites can decide for themselves which of the three (or all) they will use, so please contact a test center close to you for details.

The TASC and HiSET are available in both paper- and computer-based versions and are cheaper than the GED exam. The TASC and HiSET exams contain five testing fields: Language Writing, Language Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
