On January 1, 2014, the GED Test was replaced with a new computer-based, four section, seven hour assessment aligned to Common Core Standards. Paper/pencil testing is no longer available. The cost of the new assessment is $128 ($32 per section).
The test will be offered 12 months a year at SCTI. Test dates will be posted soon, and should include a number of testing opportunities beginning in mid-February, 2014.
Candidates may visit www.GED.com
