This page lists all GED prep class locations and testing facilities in the Elko region. Nevada provides two exams for High School Equivalency testing, the GED and HiSET.
Both exams can be taken at certified Nevada test centers and online. To learn more about the online HiSET and GED tests, check below.
The exams give persons that didn’t graduate high school one more option to obtain an equivalent diploma.
Testing occurs at a similar level as what high school seniors are required to commend upon graduation.
The HiSET® is offered both in a paper-and-pencil and a computer-based format, whereas the GED is only available on a computer.
The GED® includes four individual modules (subtests) in the subject fields of Literacy, Science, Social Studies, and Math.
You are given the option to sit for the GED subtests one at a time.
HiSET testing includes five subtests (writing and reading are separate tests) that may also be taken one at a time.
