ACE President Molly Corbett Broad on Launch of GED Testing Service’s MyGED

December 04, 2013

 

“Today marks an important milestone in the American Council on Education’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.

Students across the country can now access MyGED at GED.com to register for the new 2014 GED® test to be released Jan. 2. In addition to test-taking information, the new site provides cutting-edge resources to help adults better prepare for the new test, which is aligned with state and national college and career readiness standards. The site also helps adults identify career pathways, investigate potential jobs and better prepare for college and career training programs.

Our goal when we formed a joint venture in March 2011 with Pearson to create the new GED Testing Service was to take a fresh approach to recapturing the incredible waste of human talent represented by the millions of Americans who lack a high school diploma. Launching the new MyGED online portal is an important step in our bold and far-sighted effort to transition the GED from just a high school equivalency test 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 will better prepare them for success in college and career training programs.”
