GED Testing Service Launches Online Information and Registration Portal

December 04, 2013


​Registration is now open for the new GED® test being released Jan. 2, and the MyGED online portal is available to adult learners who wish to register and learn more about the new test and take advantage of the portal’s new cutting-edge resources, GED Testing Service has announced.

The MyGED website will serve as a central hub to help students find information about and register for the GED test. Starting today, it also will include a wide range of resources to help adults lacking a high school diploma to prepare for college and career training programs required to find good jobs with good wages.

In addition to information about how to apply for training programs and financial assistance, the new features include the ability to develop personalized study plans, take a skills assessment and explore career pathways.

ACE President Molly Corbett Broad said in a statement that this “marks an important milestone in ACE’s work to expand the pipeline of post-traditional learners who are prepared for college level work and equipped to vie in an increasingly competitive global economy for good jobs paying good wages.”

In March 2011, ACE announced the creation of the new 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 new GED test is fully aligned to state and national college and career readiness standards for adult education. GED Testing Service is a joint venture of ACE and Pearson.

The GED test has opened doors to better jobs and college programs for more than 18 million graduates since 1942.
