Posted here are all GED prep class locations and testing sites in the Pierre region. South Dakota uses the computerized GED exam for High School Equivalency testing.
GED testing is available in an online format and at certified GED test facilities.
The assessment gives individuals without a high school diploma the opportunity to earn an equivalent credential.
The GED® test measures proficiency at a level similar to that of graduating HS seniors.
GED testing takes place through four subtests in Math, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies that you can complete one test at a time.
In earlier days, online GED testing was never available. Test-takers were required to show up in person at a state-designated testing site.
This has changed now, though, as we saw the introduction of an online proctored GED test-taking option. Learn more below.

Welcoming online GED testing
In the past, taking the GED exam over the internet was not an option. If you were looking to secure your GED diploma, your personal appearance at an official, state-approved South Dakota GED testing center was required.
Well, the introduction of an online proctored option to sit for the GED test has changed all of that. For more information, check out this article: Welcoming online GED testing.
