What’s new about the 2014 GED program?

The new GED program isn’t just a test. It’s a comprehensive, start-to-finish program that gives adults a fighting chance to go to college or find a better job with better wages. It’s also a one-stop resource for adult education needs, providing:

·  An individualized roadmap that supports a test-taker from preparation through testing and onto college or the workforce, including assistance navigating the college financial aid process

·  Online resources to help test-takers determine career pathways suited to their strengths and passions

·  An official practice test that shows test-takers their strengths and where they need to improve, including     specific pages to study in training materials at home and online

·  A mobile-friendly platform that allows test-takers to use their smartphones to prepare, register, and     check scores when they have unexpected free time

·  The only high school equivalency test built from the ground-up, and fully aligned from day one to the   College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education recommended by the U.S. Department of Education

·  Easy, same-day access to test scores so test-takers know right away if they’ve passed and won’t have to wait weeks to start applying for jobs, for college or to retake the test

·  Cutting-edge analytics for local test administrators to track performance, create reports, and manage a     successful program tailored to the needs of test-takers in their community

 

GED testing on computer

 

The new GED program will shift entirely to a computer-based testing format, allowing test-takers to demonstrate that they have the basic digital literacy skills that employers, colleges, and researchers say are essential to succeed in today’s workplace and career training programs. Testing on computer also means increased scheduling flexibility for test-takers. We’ve been offering the GED test on computer across the U.S. for nearly two years, and the results have been overwhelmingly positive. For instance:

 

· More than 200,000 GED tests have been taken on computer

 

·  People aren’t just passing the test on computers—they’re passing at a rate nearly 15 percentage points higher than those who take paper-based tests

 

·  People who fail a GED test on computer are nearly 60 percent more likely to re-take the test than those who take the test on paper

 

·  People taking the GED test on computer finish faster than those who take the test on paper, and adults of all ages have described the experience as being “simple,” “less stressful,” and “easier”.
