2014 GED® test

An upcoming change to 2018 GED® Science test forms

In this month's InSession newsletter we announced an upcoming change to 2018 GED® Science test forms. Here is an excerpt:

"Beginning in 2018, the Science test will not include Short Answer items. All Science test forms will have the same number of score points and the same test length. This change will give GEDTS additional flexibility in choosing the item types that best measure students’ attainment of our science indicators."

New GED Testing Service Updates Help Connect Adult Education Centers To Potential Students

A recent survey of GED® test-takers shows that while almost 2/3 of test-takers believe that attending a GED® prep class will help them pass the test, 1/3 of test-takers don’t know where to find one or even that these programs exist!

That’s why GED Testing Service is making it easier to connect these test-takers to your adult education programs. Please click here to finish reading this report in In Session.
