Regardless the test or the state, students are still making their way forward to college, towards a better job, and a better future for themselves and their families.
Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) June 09, 2015
The GED®, or General Educational Development test, was revamped in 2014 and since that time, two new high school equivalency exams have stepped onto the scene and continue to gain in popularity. In their collectively short lifespans, the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) has already been adopted by nine states, and the HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) is already used in 14 states.
Students now attempting to pass any of these three exams face even harder standards than before. The U.S. Department of Education has also been working to have all states adhere to a Common Core of standards, but students have been reportedly voicing their frustrations about which test to take now, or where to turn.
Fully anticipating these new exams, changes, and standards, GED®forFREE.com has evolved as well and recently updated the 100% free and online GED® prep course to also cover material found in the TASC and HiSET exams, in this way continuing to help thousands of students of all ages to study and pass the GED® test, the TASC and HiSET exams.
GED®forFree.com is also finding in 2015 that students need all the help they can get with practice tests. Harder questions and required higher-level skills have lead to lower scores, but there is a silver lining. Compared to 2014 testing and pass rates are up so far in 2015. GED® spokesman CT Turner has put the first months of 2015 pass rate for the GED® at 70%.
"One of the challenges with the new test options has been to bring awareness to colleges and employers of the new tests, all that provide for state-issued high school equivalency diplomas" reports GEDforFree.com lead instructor James Donald. "Regardless the test or the state, students are still making their way forward to college, towards a better job, and a better future for themselves and their families."
