This post lists all GED prep locations and testing sites in the Scottsdale region. Arizona offers the GED® exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The GED test can also be taken online by students who attain scores in the “green” zone on the official GED Ready® practice test. Read more below.
HSE testing offers persons who never finished high school the chance to acquire an equivalent degree.
GED testing takes place at a comparable level as what graduating high school students must know.
The GED exam contains four independent subtests in these subject fields: literacy, math, social studies, and science.
You have the freedom to take one (or more) of the subtests at a time.
Students who want to earn their HSE diploma in Arizona must also pass the Arizona Civics Test.

Introduction of the online GED exam
Taking the four GED subtests online is now also possible in an online format. In the past, students were required to appear at an official Arizona GED test center in person if they wished to earn their Arizona GED diplomas.
Now, that has now changed as the GED test became available online as well. An online proctor guides you through the entire process and will see if you do it all in line with the regulations. Learn more here: introducing the online proctored GED exam.
