2014 GED® Test to Embrace College and Career Readiness

2014 GED® Test to Embrace College and Career Readiness
TCSG official: “ready to support this productive change for the residents of Georgia”

Atlanta, GA - The State of Georgia will launch a new GED® program in January 2014 that has been developed by the national GED Testing Service (GEDTS) in Washington, D.C.

The change will align the entire GED program with college and career readiness standards and provide the level of academic rigor required by the increased demands of the job market.

Students who are taking the current GED test, but have not passed all five parts, have until the end of 2013 to pass. All partially-completed tests and scores will expire at the end of the year, meaning those students who do not act now will have to completely start over again in 2014 with the new GED test in order to receive their high school equivalency credential.
