Listed here are all GED® prep facilities and test centers in the Lake Jackson area. Texas is using the GED exam for the state’s high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The GED test is given in an online proctored format and at certified Texas testing centers.
The HSE program gives adults who could not complete high school the opportunity to get hold of an equivalent degree.
The GED (General Education Development) exam is totally computerized and can be taken in English or Spanish.
The GED comes with four separate subject tests in Science, Social Studies, Literacy, and Math that can be taken one at a time.
Until recently, there was no way you could sit for the GED exam online. Testing was exclusively done at state-recognized testing sites.
Now, this has changed with the arrival of an online testing option for the GED exam. Read more below.

Introducing the online proctored GED test
If you wanted to sit for the GED exam, you were required to show up in person at an official Texas high school equivalency (HSE) test center. Online HSE testing was simply not possible. But now, that has changed as we saw the arrival of an online proctored GED testing option.
To get more information about the recently launched online proctored GED test, check out this post: Introducing the online proctored GED test.

Your high school equivalency diploma is accepted across the nation just like a common high school diploma by virtually every North American employer and school. The GED is modular, meaning the subtests (modules) are independent tests.
The GED exam measures basic knowledge and skills at a level comparable to what students have learned in four years of high school. Students that successfully complete the GED exam will receive their Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency (TxCHSE).
