GED Classes Pierre, South Dakota

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 South Dakota 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 that assess proficiency in these academic subject areas:

  • Math (Mathematical Reasoning)
  • Science
  • Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts)
  • Social Studies

The four independent, modular GED sub-exams can be completed 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.
