Listed here are all GED prep class locations and testing facilities in the Plattsburgh area. New York State is using the GED exam for high school equivalency testing.
The exam is for adults who never completed high school and provides the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED® (General Education Development) exam measures academic proficiency at a level similar to that of HS students upon graduation.
New York was using the TASC exam for this purpose in the years 2014-2021, but that program was not continued. Earlier TASC passing scores are also good for the GED exam!
The GED exam is fully computerized and includes four modular subtests in math, science, social studies, and literacy (reading and writing combined).
In New York, GED testing is offered at no charge but only to state residents. The exam can be taken only at one of the state’s official test centers. The online GED exam is not (yet) offered in New York State.
The four independent GED modules (subtests) can be completed one at a time if wished.

GED passing score
The passing score on EACH of the four GED modules is 145 points. Averaging is NOT an option, so you’ll have to attain at least that score on each individual GED subtest.
The GED subtests are scored on a 100-200 scale and there are four sections.
100-144: This is the GED Below-Passing Score. You’ll have to retake that part.
145-164: This is the GED High School Equivalent Score section.
165-174: This is the GED College-Ready Score.
175-200: This GED College-Ready Score will also get you up to ten college credits.
