Posted here are all GED preparatory classes and test centers in the Watertown region. New York is using the GED assessment for the purpose of high school equivalency testing.
The exam offers persons who didn’t graduate high school an extra option to secure an equivalent diploma.
GED® testing is done at a level similar to what students must command when they graduate from high school.
Over the years 2014 through 2021, the state was using the TASC exam for this purpose, but that came to an end by Dec. 31, 2021. Earlier passing scores on the TASC exam also count for the new GED!
The GED high school equivalency (HSE) exam includes four independent, modular sub-exams in Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts (Writing and Reading together in 1 sub-exam).
The GED exam must be taken on a computer. There’s no paper-based testing anymore.
To earn your GED diploma, you can sit for the exam only at one of New York’s state-approved testing sites. New York doesn’t offer online GED testing (yet).
