Posted here are all available GED prep classes and test centers in the Mesa region. Arizona is using the computer-based GED exam for high school equivalency testing.
The GED exam is now also offered online for qualifying test-takers who score “green” on the GED Ready® official practice test.
An online proctor will guide you through the online testing process. Read more below.
The GED® test offers adults who didn’t finish their high school curriculum another chance to earn an equivalent diploma.
The assessment measures knowledge at a similar level as what graduating high school students must know. There are four GED subtests covering these academic fields:
- English Literacy (“Reasoning through Language Arts”)
- Social Studies
- Mathematics (“Mathematical Reasoning”)
You have the option to take the four subtests one at a time and in the order you prefer.
Please note that Arizona requires GED hopefuls to take and pass the state’s Civics Test as well.
