GED Classes Reno, Nevada

This post contains a listing of all GED® prep classes and testing sites in the Reno area.

Nevada offers multiple options for HSE (High School Equivalency) testing, the GED, HiSET and TASC exams.

The HSE exam measures proficiency at a level that compares to that of graduating high school seniors.

The GED is fully computer-formatted whereas the HiSET and TASC are offered both on-computer and on-paper.

GED testing is done via four separate modules (subtests) in math science, literacy, and social studies.

You can take one (or more) of the four GED modules at a time but you need to finish the GED battery within two years.

The HiSET and TASC exams have five subtests as the literacy section is split up into two exams 1n writing and reading. You may also take these subtests individually.

Online HSE testing is NOT possible. You must show up in person at one of Nevada’s official HSE testing sites.

GED Vs. HiSET and TASC exams

Adjusted GED passing score

To pass the GED test you needed to score no less than 150 on each sub-test, but this requirement was lowered to 145. For all the details, you can go to our GED News posts. HiSET and TASC have different scoring methods. Online testing is not possible. Internet sites that want you to believe something else are false! Check also this article that includes links to all GED programs in America.

Who can take the GED exam?

The High School Equivalency program is created for individuals who, for whatever reason, never finished high school. The certificate that you will obtain after completing the exam is acknowledged as equivalent to a high school diploma by the vast majority of employers, and universities and colleges across the U.S. To see if you qualify, check out HSE Testing in Nevada.

GED alternatives TASC and HiSET

The state of Nevada has decided to offer two more alternatives for high school equivalency testing. No longer is Nevada only presenting the GED for this program, it now also offers the HiSET and TASC. For successful applicants, all three tests will result in a document that indicating that the student was educated at a level that compares to that of a high school upon graduation. The GED exam has been around for over 70 years, and during all these years adults without a high school diploma needed to pass the GED test to get the Nevada Certificate of High School Equivalency.

The GED exam

The GED diploma allows for college education and will certainly lead to far better job options including the military services. The GED is now entirely computerized and corresponds better with the Common Core State Standards, a set of standards accepted by most states that details what students must command on what subject upon ending a grade level.

The new GED has done away with many multiple-choice questions and is focused more on critical thinking and problem-solving. The GED test is now more rigorous and will prepare students better to be successful in college and the modern-day workplace.

Nevada options

Nevada residents now have the following options:
– The GED exam published by GED Testing Service. Totally computer-based, and the most widely used examination for HSE (high school equivalency) testing. The GED exam (four separate tests) costs $120.
– The HiSET by Educational Testing Service. Available in paper and computer formats. The HiSET is much cheaper to implement than the GED exam. The HiSET (a series of 5 tests) costs $65.
– The TASC edited by CTB/McGraw-Hill, a textbook publisher. The TASC is available in both paper and computer-formatted versions, and also cheaper than the GED exam. The test is $65.

One GED test at a timeAge Requirements By State

The GED exam contains four individual sub-tests in the academic fields of Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Literacy. There’s no need to take all four tests in one take. You have the freedom to register and pay for one test every time you’re ready to do so with a 2-year period of time. The five HiSET and TASC modules may also be taken individually if you wish.

*) Truckee Meadows Community College

Truckee Meadows Community College’s Adult Education Department offers a great HSE (High School Equivalency) program that educates adults who quit high school too early. The school’s HSE program can accommodate applicants at many skill levels.

All applicants will be assessed to measure their level of proficiency and for proper placement. This testing and placement service costs $30. The state-issued HSE credential is your gateway toward a brighter future, to better employment, to higher education, and in general to a better life. Truckee Meadows Community College provides High School Equivalency prep classes at the school’s Meadowood Center.

These classes are developed with the student in mind, they are fast-paced and lively, and include lots of class participation. The fee for these preparation classes is just $30, so that should not be a barrier to acquiring the so important GED/HiSET diploma. Preparation is really important, and the school helps you to become optimally prepared to sit for the GED (four tests) or HiSET (five tests) successfully.
