Posted here are all GED® prep classes locations and testing centers in the Victorville region.
California uses several options for high school equivalency (HSE) testing, the GED, HiSET, and TASC.
HES testing offers individuals who didn’t graduate high school another shot at obtaining an equivalent degree.
The three HSE exams measure academic proficiency at a level that compares to that of graduating HS students.
The GED does so via four independent modules (subtests) that cover Science, Social Studies, Math, and Literacy.
Applicants have two years to complete all four GED subtests that are completely computer-based.
The TASC and HiSET exams are offered both in a paper-based and a computer-formatted version.
The TASC and HiSET have five subtests (individual reading and writing tests) that cannot be taken separately.

The HSE exam-who is it for?
The GED, HiSET, and TASC programs are specially developed for people who no longer attend high school and did not receive a diploma, possibly for reasons that they dropped out of high school, that they were incarcerated, or because they joined the military. The new GED exam is offered nationwide and is not tied to a particular state, but more and more states make the switch to the cheaper alternatives that are also offered on paper.
To be eligible to sit for the GED, HiSET, or TASC exam, you must be no younger than 18 years old, but for 16 and 17-year-olds there are specific requirements. The new GED exam is very different from the former (2002 series) version and students were not able anymore to transfer earlier results to the new assessment system. Go to HSE Testing in California to see if you qualify.
Online GED, TASC, or HiSET testing is NOT possible. You need to appear at a California HSE testing center personally! The GED passing score was reduced in 2016 from 150 to 145. You can read a full report here. You may very well take advantage of this website’s totally free practice tests and video lessons to help you pass the GED exam fast.
The purpose of the GED exam
The purpose of the GED program is to offer an opportunity for adults to acquire a credential that is the equivalency of a high school degree. The all-new GED (General Education Development) program is guiding you towards your High School Equivalency diploma which is accepted by virtually all US official institutions, training schools, employers, universities, and colleges.
The four GED tests
The GED exam grades candidates on four subject areas: literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies. The 2014 series of the GED exam has only a few multiple choice questions left, most answers must be essay-styled. Registration has become simple. The new GED exam is fully computerized and if you visit GED.com you will be guided completely through the process. The new GED exam is not offered in a paper-based format anymore, everything must be done on a computer and at an approved testing center (please bring a current photo-ID). More than ever before, getting properly prepared is imminent.
The GED exam – what’s new
The GED exam has totally changed. Restructuring the exam was needed to make sure that it would remain (or get back) in line with industry and university standards and requirements, and the new GED exam harmonizes better again with needs and practices of these sectors.
The new GED exam is now fully computer-formatted and is better focusing on teaching the students the skills and knowledge required by employers. Students will be far better prepared to function well in the modern-day work environment. You now have the possibility to sit for (and pay for) one of the GED tests at a time. Prepare for one part, pass that test, and go on to the next part.
The GED exam did away with most multiple-choice questions and is now almost entirely essay-based. This way, students will also be better prepared for attending courses at university or college successfully. There are more than 4,1 million available but unfillable jobs in the USA, for the greater part jobs that call for a secondary education degree (HS or GED diploma). The nation just doesn’t produce enough qualified people, so take your chances and go for your GED diploma and get hold of one of these jobs.
GED-HiSET-TASC passing score
Going for your GED diploma is the first step to a nicer future. With a brand new assessment system comes a brand new judging and scoring format. The new GED passing score was at first 150 on a scale 100 – 200. This was adjusted in early 2016, and now the required score on every one of the four subject fields is 145.
The GED program now lets you take one of the 4 tests (modules) at the moment you feel sufficiently prepared, and your test results are valid for two years. This does not apply to TASC and HiSET. To pass the TASC, your result on each of the five subject field tests need to be between 500 and 800, and an essay score between 2 and 8 is also required. To take the HiSET successfully, your score on each subtest must be between 8 and 20, your essay result between 2 and 6, and your total score in the 45-100 range.
Online HSE testing?
Though preparing for the GED /TASC/HiSET exam is perfectly okay, you need to come to a state-approved GED testing site if you want to earn your GED credential, there just is NO other way. Internet sites that want to make you believe something else are fraudulent and their documents are worthless. Employers and schools will definitely not accept these fake diplomas, a waste of your money.
Community-Health-Action-Network (CHAN) in Victorville receives a $5,000 grant for its GED preparation program. The grant is awarded by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation to support the program that provides also job readiness skills training to low-income residents who successfully completed the GED exam. These job readiness classes will support them to enter the workforce more smoothly. The agency is excited to be recognized by Bank of America for the importance of offering educational instruction and workforce development training to the High Desert area.
It is the GED program’s goal to reduce under- and unemployment, and to boost the job readiness of the residents of the communities of Victorville and surrounding High Desert area. CHAN’s GED preparation program is set up as a 13-week-long workshop where applicants can use computer programs to get optimally prepared to sit for the GED exam.
CHAN is a non-profit agency that was founded in 2007, and it is the organization’s mission to provide health-related education and activities for low-income and at-risk groups. At the moment, CHAN organizes four programs for the High Desert area, including a GED preparation program for Victorville, Apple Valley, Hesperia, and Barstow.
