 We purchase GED® vouchers from PearsonVue.  PearsonVue holds the test bank of questions for your individualized tests. You pay us for each $33 sub-test and we then pay PearsonVue to download your sub-test on to the USD 368 server. When you pay for and schedule each test, they send us your test, which sits at the server until your proctor takes you through the log-in process at the time of testing.  Your test is then delivered to the computer you are sitting at in the testing room.

 The four sub-tests may also be purchased on-line with a credit or debit card. If this is the preferred method, each test needs to be scheduled and paid for individually, even if you are scheduling more than one test on a particular day.

Photo Identification

 You will need to present current state identification (driver’s license or state I.D.) to be admitted into the GED® test for each test.
