The length of preparation depends on your skill level. To become a student, you take the TABE test (Test for Adult Basic Education). This test is a measurement of you reading, writing, and math skills. If your past educational history indicates that you would score high on these subjects, you may qualify as a Provisional Student. In which case you would complete the TASC Readiness Exams, and your preparation time would be decreased. Since LARA is not on a standard school semester schedule, you take the test when you can show that you are ready. After you register on-line, you will be called for an advising appointment. The advisor will discuss your options and help you determine the best path for you.
An evaluation is recommended prior to testing, which can be done in as little as 12 hours, as well as online.
GED was the name of the old high school equivalency test. The new Indiana Test is called TASC. Once you become a student at an adult education site such as LARA, you will prepare for the test. By taking the test, you will earn an HSE (high school equivalency) diploma.
All 5 tests cost $115. An individual test is $23 each.
Classes at LARA are free. You can choose classes in English Language Learning (ELL), high school equivalency diploma (HSE), or Career Bound Preparation. If you qualify for advanced training based on your TABE Scores and completing the Career Bound Preparation steps, all additional training is free too. You may also qualify for free testing.
