Buckeye Career Center offers the official, computer-based GED® Test on-site at the school's testing center. Prior to testing, prospective testers need to set up a personalized account and register online through GED.com. The personal GED® page is also where students can pay for and take the GED® Ready practice tests in the four subjects (Math, Reasoning Through Language Arts, Science, Social Studies), as well as view test results with same-day scoring. Testers are encouraged not to take all four GED® subjects at the testing center in the same day.
