In this article, you can discover all GED® prep facilities and test centers in and around The Dalles. Oregon uses the GED exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The GED test can be taken online and at state-designated Oregon GED test centers.
HSE testing offers adults who couldn’t graduate high school one more shot at acquiring an equivalent degree.
HES testing occurs at a level that’s comparable to what high school students must know upon graduation
The GED exam includes four subtests in Math, Social Studies, Literacy, and Science
These subtests can be completed separately. There’s no need to take at all at once.
In earlier days, there was never an online GED testing option. You always had to show up at one of Oregon’s official testing sites and take the tests in person.
This, however, has now changed with the launch of an online proctored GED testing option. Read more below.

The four subtests of the GED (General Educational Development) exam are in Mathematical Reasoning (115 min), Reasoning Through Language Arts (150 min. incl. a 10-minute break), Science (90 minutes), and Social Studies (70 minutes). The GED test is modular, implying you can sit (and pay) for one subject test at a time.
Preparation is necessary for every important exam, and students who prepare well are likely to pass sooner, and this also applies to the GED exam, which has become very rigorous. The four-part GED exam is administered fully on a computer, paper-based testing is a thing of the past.
Some of the advantages of obtaining your GED certificate are that finding a better job will be easier as most vacant jobs in this country require a high school diploma or GED certificate. The GED certificate is recognized as equivalent to a high school degree by virtually all colleges and universities, and getting your GED degree allows you to go on with studying at institutions of higher learning.
Registration has become very simple, just sign up for MyGED at GED.com and you can choose the day and the time that suits you best. You can schedule (and pay) one test at a time, so make sure you are properly prepared every time you take an individual test.
Introducing online proctored GED testing
To earn an Oregon high school equivalency credential, you always needed to show up, in-person, at an official state-approved Oregon GED testing site. Online GED testing was simply not available but recently, we have seen the introduction of a new online proctored GED testing option, so all of that is changing.
