This article is an overview of all GED testing facilities and prep class sites in the Burlington, Vermont region. Vermont is using the GED exam for the state’s high school equivalency testing program.
In most states that are using the GED, the exam can be taken online (the Online Proctored, O.P. test) or at certified test centers. In Vermont, however, online testing is NO option.
The assessment provides persons who couldn’t graduate high school with another shot at acquiring an equivalent degree.
Testing is done at a level that’s comparable to that of graduating HS seniors.
The GED® test includes 4 individual and independent subtests in Language Arts, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Science, that can be completed separately.
Until recently, online GED testing was not possible. You had to make a personal appearance at a designated testing center, and that’s still the case in Vermont.
In most states, that has now changed with the arrival of an online GED testing option. To learn more, check the information at the bottom of this post.

Introducing an online GED testing format
Until recently, there was no way you could take the GED exam over the internet. If you were looking to secure your GED diploma, you needed to show up personally at an official, state-designated GED testing facility.
Now, that has changed in most states with the introduction of an online GED testing option. A proctor will monitor online if your test-taking activities are in line with the regulations. If you want to get more information about this great development, visit Introducing the online GED test.
In Vermont, however, online GED testing is NOT possible. Go to GED in Vermont for eligibility requirements.

The GED battery of four tests addresses the requirements of employers and colleges optimally. The GED (General Education Development) program is for adults who never completed high school.
The certificate that you acquire when you pass the Vermont GED exam is everywhere accepted as equivalent to a common high school credential. You don’t need to take the entire GED battery at once. You can take (and pay for) one test at a time.
The 4 GED tests
To earn a GED certificate, candidates must pass four separate tests covering math, science, literacy (reading and writing), and social studies. The score necessary to pass is 145 on each of the four GED subject tests, so you must score a total of 580 or more.
The passing score does not reflect a minimum level of academic achievement. In fact, the passing standard is set so that 40 percent of all high-school graduates would fail the GED test on the first try. The GED assessment system is designed to measure whether a student has mastered a level of knowledge comparable to that of high-school graduates.
