Listed in this post are all GED prep class locations and test centers in the El Dorado area. Arkansas uses the computer-formatted GED exam for the state’s high school equivalency testing program.
The exam can be taken online or at one of Arkansas’ state-approved GED testing centers.
The GED® (General Education Development) test is specifically developed for adults who never finished high school.
The GED exam assesses basic knowledge at a level that high school students must command upon graduation.
If they pass the GED exam, they will receive a credential that is accepted in the same way as a regular HS diploma.
The GED has four independent tests in Math, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies that can be completed separately.

Introducing the online GED exam
It is now also possible to take the GED exam online. In the past, GED test-takers were required to report to an official Arkansas GED test center in person when they wanted to secure their Arkansas GED diplomas.
Now, this has all changed with the arrival of the online proctored (OP) GED test. An online proctor is guiding students through the testing process and monitor the activities. More information? Go to this post: Introducing the online GED exam.
