This article lists all GED prep class locations and testing centers in the greater Rapid City area. South Dakota welcomed the computerized GED exam for its high school equivalency testing program.
The GED exam is available online and at certified South Dakota GED test centers.
The GED® program gives people who did not complete high school the chance to earn an equivalent credential.
The exam comes with four independent subtests in math, science, literacy, and social studies.
The GED exam measures knowledge at a level comparable to that of high school students upon graduation.
In earlier days, online GED testing was not possible. You were required to show up at one of South Dakota’s official GED testing sites in person.
But now, the introduction of online proctored GED testing has changed that. For more information, go to the bottom of this post.
