New standards coming for GED credential
LISBON - New standards are coming for the General Education Development (GED) credential. Those who have started the process should complete their testing soon or risk losing credit for the progress made so far.
Changes include: a higher fee, a reduction from five to four tests in the GED exams, more emphasis on critical thinking and analytical skills using short essays rather than multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions, and harder questions in general.
Ohio residents currently pay $40 for the GED test and $10 per section to retest. The cost will increase to $120 or $30 per section in January 2014. The test will be administered only at Pearson-Vue testing centers and converted to a computerized format.
In 2014, individuals who have passed only parts of the current exam must take the entire test over to earn a GED. ABLE instructors will help students prepare for different parts of the GED exam. Classes are offered in Columbiana, Salem, Lisbon and East Liverpool.
To take the test now or enroll in classes to prepare for the exam call the Columbiana County Career and Technical Center ABLE program at 330-424-9561 Ext. 190.
