GED Classes Youngstown, Ohio

In this post, you can find all GED® classes and testing centers in the Youngstown area. Ohio is using the computer-based GED exam for High School Equivalency (HSE) testing.

Additionally, Ohio welcomed the HiSET® exam for this purpose which is offered both on-computer and on-paper.

The GED and HiSET exams can be taken online or at one of Ohio’s official HSE test centers.

Both options measure knowledge at a level that’s comparable to that of graduating HS seniors.

The GED exam has four individual tests in the fields of Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

You can take one subtest (module) at a time. There’s no need to take it all in one testing session.

The HiSET comes with five subtests as the section “Literacy” has separate Language Reading and Language Writing tests.

These HiSET subtests may, if you would like, be taken individually as well.

In earlier days, online HiSET or GED testing was never an option. Since recently, however, the GED and HiSET exams are available over the internet as well. Read more below at the bottom of this page.

The introduction of online HiSET and GED testing

It used to be that students who were looking to acquire their Ohio high school equivalency diploma never had the option to do so over the internet. They always needed to come, in-person, to one of Ohio’s designated HSE testing sites. But now, we’ve seen the arrival of both a HiSET and a GED online proctored testing option.

If you’re interested in this opportunity and want to learn more about the new online HiSET testing option, go to this article: ‘The new online HiSET testing option’, and if you would like to learn more about the newly introduced online proctored GED option, go to this page: ‘Introducing an online GED option’.
