GED® Testing Available by Computer in Sioux Falls


PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation is partnering with GED® Testing Service to offer the GED® test by computer.


Southeast Technical Institute in Sioux Falls is the first testing center to pilot this endeavor beginning June 20.


Offering the GED® test by computer allows test-takers to receive instant score results, register and schedule their test online 24/7, and complete test sections at their own pace.


“GED® testing by computer provides adult learners more flexibility and convenience,” said State Labor and Regulation Secretary Pam Roberts. “This credential is essential to successfully entering the workforce or pursuing further educational and workforce training programs.”


The computer-based test will be expanded to other official testing centers this summer.


The GED® test is the only high school equivalency program recognized by all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The GED® consists of five tests: Math, Science, Social Studies, Writing and Reading.
