This post includes a full listing of GED prep sites and testing facilities in the Quincy region. Illinois uses two options for high school equivalency testing, the HiSET and GED exams.
Both tests are available online and at certified testing centers. Learn more about taking the tests online below.
The exams are for individuals who never graduated from high school and offer them the chance to obtain an equivalent degree.
The GED® has four independent subtests in math, literacy, science, and social studies that may be taken separately.
This also applies to the HiSET® exam, which contains five subject tests (separate reading and writing tests).
HiSET testing is offered both on-paper and on-computer, while the GED is entirely computerized.
Both alternatives measure knowledge at a level that may be expected from high school grads.
Illinois requires test-takers also to take and pass the state’s Constitution Test.

Introducing online GED and HiSET testing
Taking the GED or HiSET test over the internet was, until recently, not possible. That was just not offered online. To secure your high school equivalency credential, you were required to come to an official Illinois GED testing site.
Now, that has changed. Both the GED and HiSET exams recently introduced online versions using an online proctor. If you want to learn more, go to the following articles: ‘The online GED test,’ and for information about the HiSET, check out -> ‘The HiSET-at-Home test.’
The four GED tests
The GED program needed to be updated to ensure it would continue to measure what high school seniors have learned in four years, and the GED program is in line with what colleges and employers are expecting and demanding.
There are four (4) independent tests covering the academic subject fields of Science (90 min.), Social Studies (70 min.), Language Arts (150 min. but including a break of 10 min.), and Math (115 min.).
The HiSET exam has individual Language Arts Reading and Language Arts Writing subtests, so five in total.
The tests are available in English and Spanish. You can schedule (and pay for) one test (or more if you like) whenever you’re prepared enough to take the test(s) successfully. This counts for both the GED and HiSET.
