This article includes an overview of all GED® prep locations and testing facilities in the Salina region. The state of Kansas is using the GED exam for it’s High School Equivalency (HSE) testing program.
GED testing can be done online and at state-certified test centers.
The HSE program offers adults who did not complete their high school curriculum the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
HSE testing happens at a level that’s comparable to that of graduating HS seniors.
The GED exam includes four independent subtests that can be taken separately.
The four GED subtests cover the fields of Math, Literacy, Science, and Social Studies.
In the past, GED testing over the internet was not offered. Test-takers were required to come to one of Kansas’ state-designated testing sites.
Now, however, the arrival of an online GED testing option has changed that. Read more below.

Online proctored GED testing
Until recently, the GED test was not offered over the internet. To secure your Kansas GED diploma, you were required to report personally to one of Kansas’ official GED testing centers.
Now, that has changed with the arrival of an online proctored GED test-taking option where a proctor will help you through the GED test-taking process and will see whether you do it all conform to the regulations. Learn more in this post: ‘‘Online GED test-taking option introduced’.
