This post gives you a full listing of GED® classes and test centers in the Kansas City, Kansas, region. Kansas uses the computer-formatted GED exam for High School Equivalency (HSE) testing.
Test-takers can sit for the Kansas GED test online or at one of the state’s official GED testing centers.
HSE testing gives persons who never finished high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED comes with four independent subtests in the academic fields of Math, Literacy, Social Studies, and Science.
You have the option to sit for one (or more) of the four GED subtests (modules) at a time.
In the past, online GED testing was not possible. Testing needed to be done exclusively at a state-designated testing site but now, an online GED testing option was introduced as well. Read more below.
The GED diploma is accepted across North America by practically all educational institutions and employers.

New online GED testing option
In the past, GED testing was not possible via the internet. If you wished to acquire your GED credential, you needed to appear, in person, at one of Kansas’ state-approved testing sites. Well, that has changed!
The GED test has now also become available online, using a proctor to help you through the test-taking process and to see whether you do it all conform to regulations. Visit ‘A New Online GED Testing Option Has Arrived’ for more information.
