For the past 70 years, the G.E.D. test has given over 18 million people a second chance at a high school diploma.
The test students take to gain their high school equivalency will be determined by the state in which they live beginning in January.
While Kansas will offer a new version of the G.E.D, Missouri will adopt the HiSET test.
Both tests will be offered mainly on the computer, align with the K-12 Common Core Standards and result in increased costs to students.
Very informative video. I hope the technology changes to testing will mean that GED test-takers will get their results faster. Was surprised that one of the people in the story was still waiting for test results a month later.
