This article includes a full listing of GED® prep classes and testing sites in the Janesville region. Wisconsin uses the GED exam for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.
The GED exam can be taken online or at an official Wisconsin GED testing facility.
Wisconsin’s HSE test offers people who did not graduate high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED test contains four subtests that cover the fields of Science, Literacy, Social Studies, and Math.
These subtests (or modules) don’t need to be taken at the same time, you can prepare for and take one at a time.
The GED exam is quite challenging. It takes place a level that compares to what graduating high school seniors must command.
Until recently, there was no online GED test. You were required to come to a state-approved Wisconsin GED test center to sit for the four subtests in person.
Well, that has changed now with the introduction of the online proctored GED testing option. Learn more below.
Wisconsin GED test-takers must take and pass a 100-question Civics exam as well.

GED stands for General Education Development and the diploma that you will receive upon successfully taking the four tests is equivalent to a high school diploma and accepted as such by practically all U.S. employers and schools. This is your ticket to higher education and a brighter future.
GED passing score
The GED exam can be taken in English or Spanish. Please note that online GED testing is NOT possible. Personal appearance at an official test site is required. The passing score on each of the four subtests is 145 points. GED scoring is measured on a 100-200 scale. The minimally required on each subtest is 145, so your overall score cannot be under 580.
100-144: below passing
145-164: high school equivalency
175-200: college-ready + college credit
Welcoming online GED testing
You could, until recently, never sit for the four GED subtests on the internet. Students who were looking to earn their GED degrees were required to show up, in-person, at one of Wisconsin’s state-recognized GED testing facilities.
This has now come to an end with the launch of an online option to deal with the GED exam. Qualifying students that opt to take the GED test online will see that an online proctor monitors their activities to guarantee that all is happening in accordance with the rules. If you want to learn more about this great new online option, go to Welcoming an online option to take the GED test.
