These classes are designed for persons who have not completed high school. Men and women study individual materials that are on their own level and progress at their own speed. Students preparing to take the GED® test are given instruction in reading, writing, math, social studies, and science through instructor-led, computer- assisted, and independent study. Some students need minimal preparation, while others may attend classes for a year or longer. Students are encouraged to take a section of the GED® test whenever they and the instructor feel the results will be positive. In order to receive a Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency, a student must pass all 4 tests with a combined score of 600 or higher, and with no one test scoring below 145.
