This article posts all GED test centers and prep facilities in the Carson City region. Nevada offers two options for High School Equivalency testing the GED and HiSET tests.
Both options are available at official Nevada testing centers and in an online format. Check below to read more about online HiSET and GED testing.
The assessments give adults who never finished high school one more shot at securing an equivalent diploma.
Both tests assess knowledge at a level similar to what students must master upon graduating from high school.
GED® testing includes four subtests in Math, Science, English Language Arts, and Social Studies that can be completed separately.
The HiSET® comes with individual reading and writing tests (so five overall) that can be taken separately as well.
The HiSET is available on paper and in a computerized format, while the GED is taken exclusively on a computer.

Launching online GED and HiSET testing
Until recently, the GED and HiSET exams had to be dealt with exclusively at state-approved HSE testing sites. That has, fortunately, changed with the launch of online testing options for both the GED and the HiSET exams.
