GED Testing Service Launches 2014 GED Program

January 06, 2014



The 2014 GED® program was formally launched last week by the GED Testing Service. Key to the program is a new test aligned with state and national college and career readiness standards.

The program also includes a more flexible, test-taker-friendly computer-based system and same-day score results. The goal is to transform the GED test from just a high school equivalency assessment to a comprehensive start-to-finish 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,” said ACE President Molly Corbett Broad in a statement. “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.”

In March 2011, ACE announced the creation of the GED Testing Service in order to improve the outcomes of adult learners who participate in the GED testing program and ensure the test’s quality and integrity. The GED test has opened doors to better jobs and college programs for more than 18 million graduates since 1942.
