ACE President Molly Corbett Broad on Launch of 2014 GED Program

January 02, 2014

 

​"Today is a great and important day as GED® Testing Service formally releases the new 2014 GED® program. This new, comprehensive GED program is a critical step forward in the American Council on Education's efforts to expand the pipeline of learners who are prepared for college-level work. It will better support and equip adult learners to compete in today's economy and be qualified for good jobs that pay a living wage.

We formed our joint venture with Pearson in 2011 to create the new GED Testing Service as a bold move to recapture the incredible waste of human talent represented by the millions of Americans who lack a high school diploma, and are unprepared for the college and career programs required for most of today's jobs.

Key to the program is a new test, aligned with state and national college and career readiness standards. The new GED program also includes a more flexible, test-taker-friendly computer-based system and same-day score results. It will transition the GED test from just a high school equivalency assessment to a comprehensive start-to-finish program.

The 2014 GED program will better support adult learners, provide them with the tools they need to perform well on the test, and bridge the gap from high school dropout to middle-skill job-holder."
