GED Prep

As you may know, Wisconsin has adopted the new 2014 GED.  GED is a trademarked acronym used for the General Educational Development Tests, a battery of examinations administered by states to measure the skills and knowledge similar to a high school course of study. GED graduates earn a GED credential. While the landscape for all the tests continues to settle, we thought you may be interested in knowing some of the basic differences between the old 2002 GED and the new 2014 GED.  For example, the test format for the 2014 GED test is computer-based only, without an option to be taken on paper. The number of tests has changed from five to four: Reasoning through Language Arts (RLA), Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies.  For additional comparison information, see the chart on the Proliteracy Web site.
