Listed in this post are all GED® prep class options and testing sites in Palm Springs and its surroundings. California uses two options for High School Equivalency (HSE) testing, the GED and HiSET®.
Both the HiSET and GED exams are available online and at official California test centers. Learn more below.
The HSE test gives individuals who never finished high school one more option to earn an equivalent diploma.
Testing takes place at a level similar to what HS students must know upon graduation.
The GED has four subtests on Literacy, Math, Science, and Social studies that can be taken separately.
The HiSET comes with five subject fields (individual writing and reading tests) that are also available separately.
Testing occurs at a knowledge level that compares to that of HS students upon graduation.
GED testing is done entirely computer-based while the HiSET exam can be taken on-paper or on-computer.

GED and HiSET online testing
The GED and HiSET exams are now also offered over the internet. In the past, there was no online GED or HiSET test option. You needed to show up at a state-designated testing center and take the tests in person. Well, that has now changed.
