GED Classes Poplar Bluff, Missouri

This article shows all HSE (High School Equivalency) prep locations and testing facilities in the Poplar Bluff area. Missouri is using two options for that purpose: the GED and HiSET exams.

It used to be that the HiSET and GED exams couldn’t be taken online. Test-takers had to appear in person at a state-designated testing site.

Online GED Classes

A simple and easy way of getting your GED diploma.

Learn fast, stay motivated, and pass your GED quickly.


Recently, however, we witnessed the arrival of options to take the GED® and HiSET® exams online. Read more at the bottom of this post.

Like the GED, the HiSET exam gives persons who could not graduate high school another opportunity to obtain an equivalent credential.

Testing occurs at a similar level as what may be expected of high school students upon graduation.

GED testing takes place through four modular, independent subtests that measure an applicant’s proficiency in the following academic fields:

  • English Language
  • Mathematics
  • Social Studies
  • Science

The HiSET exam has one more subtest because Language has individual writing and reading sub-exams. All GED and HiSET modules can be taken individually and in any order.

The HiSET exam is available in a paper-based version and on a computer, whereas the GED is entirely computer-based.
