Changes are Coming to the GED Test

by Gail Stone, Centennial ACE (Adult Continuing Education) Teacher

The GED test is undergoing unprecedented changes that will affect millions – the estimated number of adult Americans without a high school degree (40 million), and those who have not passed all five tests that comprise the GED (General Educational Developmental Diploma). New Year’s Eve, 2013, is the deadline when those who have not passed all five tests will need to start over.
Minnesota Basic Education has prepared a three minute video on this topic.
