Listed here are all GED® prep locations and testing facilities in and around La Grande. The GED is for adults who left high school prematurely and offers them the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
GED testing can be done online and at official Oregon GED test centers.
The GED exam includes four computer-based subtests that cover the fields of Literacy, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
You have the liberty to take these subtests (or modules) one at a time. No need to sit for all four tests in one take.
GED testing occurs at a level comparable to that of HS seniors upon graduation.
The GED diploma is accepted in the same way as a high school degree by practically all employers and post-secondary education institutions.
Until recently, there was no GED testing option over the internet. You needed to come to a state-designated GED test center in person.
Recently, however, we’ve seen the introduction of an online testing option. Read more below.

The GED exam
The GED test is entirely ‘digitalized’. It now is better directed toward the skills and knowledge that are required by employers and colleges. Students are better instructed to function properly in the contemporary job market. Gone are many multiple-choice questions and answers should be done more essay-based. The GED will guarantee that applicants can follow courses at university or college successfully. You have the option to sit for one (or more) of the GED subtests, or modules, at a time.
Almost 340,000 adult Oregonians (this is more than the populations of Salem and Eugene combined) don’t have the basic educational requirement (a secondary education credential such as HS or GED diploma) that qualifies them for college and career. In a disproportional way, these adults are colored and grew up in poverty.
In other states, the situation is at least comparable, and it is a clear indication of the failure of the American educational system. It represents, though, quite a significant economic burden for Oregon residents.
People who, for whatever reason, never completed high school, are known to be relying more on public social services. Because they typically have no job or low-paying jobs, they will pay fewer taxes as well. But there are options for them to change their situation. Holding the GED diploma will certainly result in better employment options and allows for higher educations in college or university.
Welcoming an online proctored GED exam option
If you were looking to get hold of a high school equivalency (HSE) diploma, you always had to show up in-person at an official Oregon GED testing facility. There was just no online option to deal with the GED test. Well, recently we saw the launch of an online GED testing option as well, so all of that had changed.
