On January 1, 2014, the GED Test was replaced with a new computer-based, four module assessment aligned to Common Core Standards.
The four modules are...
- Mathematics (115 minutes)
- Reasoning through Language Arts (150 minutes)
- Science (90 minutes)
- Social Studies (90 minutes)
There is no longer a limit to the number of times an individual may test in a year; however, after three attempts, there is a 60 day waiting period before retesting can occur. Candidates are encouraged to participate in GED preparation classes. Information on classes may be obtained by viewing the SCTI catalog at www.SCTI.edu.
GED Preparation class locations & schedules
The GED Test will be offered 12 months a year at SCTI in the GED Test Center, located in Building 3, Room 202 on the main campus.
Candidates may visit www.GED.com for test schedules and to register for GED testing. Candidates may also register by calling the Pearson VUE Center at 1-877-392-6433 (877-EXAMGED).
