Posted here are all GED® prep class locations and testing centers in the Westerly region. Rhode Island administers the computer-based GED exam for HSE (high school equivalency) testing.
GED testing can be done online and a state-certified GED test centers.
The HSE test gives individuals who left high school without a diploma an extra chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED comes with four subtests, or modules, that cover the academic subject areas of literacy, math, science, and social studies.
To complete the GED exam, you don’t have to take the entire battery in one take. You can take the tests one (or more) at a time.
In earlier days, the GED exam could not be taken over the Internet. Testing was exclusively done at official Rhode Island testing sites.
Fortunately, that has now changed as we saw the launch of online proctored GED testing. Check below for more details.

Who is the GED for?
The Rhode Island High School Equivalency (HSE) program is applying the General Educational Development (GED) tests to assess the knowledge and skills of applicants and are administered throughout Rhode Island by test centers that are authorized by the RI Board of Education.
Those individuals who complete the GED set of four tests successfully will be awarded the Rhode Island High School Equivalency Diploma. The GED exam is developed to help persons who never completed high school and gives them another chance to acquire a diploma that is accepted in the same way as a common HS diploma by employers and colleges across the US.
The GED exam needs to be taken on authorized computers, and the exam includes four separate tests in the content areas of Reasoning through Language Arts (150 minutes), Mathematical Reasoning (115 minutes), Science (90 minutes), and Social Studies (70 minutes).
The Rhode Island price tag for each of the four tests is $30 ($120 for the set of four tests). There is no need to take all tests at one time, you can prepare for, schedule, and pay for one test every time you feel you are ready to take that subject test.
Launching online proctored GED testing
In the past, online GED testing had never been an option. To acquire your GED degree, you had to show up personally at an official Rhode Island state-approved GED testing site.
Well, this has now finally come to an end with the introduction of an online proctored way to sit for the exam. If you want to read more about this new development, go to ‘Launching an online option for GED testing’.
