The new assessment is a stepping-stone to a brighter future
On January 2, 2014, GED Testing Service will unveil a new assessment in all jurisdictions (except Canada) that ensures the GED® testing program is no longer an endpoint for adults, but a springboard for more education, training, and better-paying jobs.
The new assessment will continue to provide adults the opportunity to earn a high school credential, but it goes further by measuring career- and college-readiness skills that are the focus of today’s curriculum and tomorrow’s success.
Four content areas—literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies—will measure a foundational core of knowledge and skills that are essential for career and college readiness.
A GED® test graduate must remain competitive with students who complete their high school credentials in a traditional manner. Evidence suggests that test-takers who demonstrate fluency with the skills measured in the new assessment will be better prepared for what they plan to do with their lives. A graduate will no longer hold just a high school equivalency credential, but a roadmap for life’s success. It’s a stepping-stone toward a college classroom or a better career and a family sustaining wage.
GED Testing Service recently updated the Assessment Guide for Educators and Item Samplers (November 2012), both of which are posted online in revised form today. Each tool is an important component that we created to help familiarize you with the 2014 GED® test.
