Given the substantial changes to the GED® that recently went live, there has never been a more important time for GED® test takers to further their education and educate themselves about the changes they will be facing with the GED® test. As the U.S. Department of Education is trying to get all states to adhere to a new Common Core of standards for high schools, the high school equivalency exams are subject to these same academic standards. By March 12th, GEDforfree will unveil new materials designed to prepare students for this updated form of the test.
With these changes to the GED® test in 2014, here are some of the major changes that ALL prospective students should know:
- Any student who had not finished all five of the tests that made up the GED® by December 31, 2013, will have to start over.
- The new GED® test has only four parts instead of five.
- The four parts, or modules, in the new exam for 2014 will cover: Mathematical Reasoning, Reasoning through Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies.
- The entire GED® test is now computer-based.
- The essay, or Writing Test, has now been added into the other modules.
- Overall, the time to take the new GED® test is about the same.
- The test used to just measure on a pass or fail basis. In the new version, if students pass with a score a higher than minimum score, they can earn an "honors" distinction.
As students prepare for GED® test in its new format, they will need help getting prepared to take the test.
