Listed here is an overview of all GED preparatory classes and test facilities in the Yuma region. Arizona uses the totally computer-based GED exam for High School Equivalency testing.
Online GED testing is also a possibility for eligible test-takers that have scored in the “green” zone on the official GED Ready® test. Read more below.
The test offers adults that left high school without graduating the chance to get hold of an equivalent diploma.
Testing is done at a level that compares to what students must command after four years of high school education.
There are four GED® subtests that cover the academic fields of literacy, social studies, math, and science.
You can prepare for and take one of the four subtests (modules) at a time. In Arizona, GED test-takers must additionally pass the state’s Civics Exam.

Online GED Testing
It is now also possible to take the four GED subtests online. In the past, you needed to show up at one of Arizona’s state-approved GED testing centers in person, but that has all changed.
To qualify, however, you need to score in the “green” zone on the GED Ready practice test. An online proctor will guide you through the entire testing process. Want more information? Go to this post: The Online Proctored GED Test.
