In this article, you can discover all GED® prep facilities and testing sites in the Nampa region. Idaho uses the totally computerized GED exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The GED test is available online and at state-recognized testing facilities.
The GED exam offers individuals who couldn’t complete high school another shot at earning an equivalent diploma.
Testing takes place at a level similar to that of graduating high school seniors.
There are four GED subtests in Mathematical Reasoning (Math), Science, Reasoning through Language Arts (Literacy), and Social Studies.
You can take one of the four GED subtests (also referred to as modules) at a time.
In the past, online GED testing was not offered. You needed to show up, in person, at an official Idaho GED testing site.
Now, with the introduction of an online, proctored GED testing option, that has changed. Read more below

Online GED test-taking
Sitting for the GED test via the internet was, until recently, not possible. There just was no online GED test. If you wished to earn an Idaho GED credential, your personal appearance at one of Idaho’s official GED test sites was required.
Well, now that has all changed with the arrival of an online proctored GED testing option. An online proctor guides you through the process and checks if you do it all according to the regulations. For more information, visit this page: ‘Online GED Testing Introduced’.
GED passing score
The GED passing score is 145 on each subtest so you must score 580 points or more overall, and averaging is not possible. There is no need to take the battery of four tests in a row.
The GED exam includes four individual tests (modules) that you can take one by one at the time you are prepared enough for one of them. You may also register, and pay, for one test when you feel secure to do so.
The four tests are calibrated on a 100 to 200 scale. 100-144: below passing; 145-164: high school equivalency; 165-174: college-ready; 175-200: college-ready + college credits (up to 10, depending on the college or university).
The GED passing score is set at such a difficulty level that some 40 percent of all high school seniors could not attain passing scores on the first try.
