To help individuals prepare for the new General Educational Development Test, the GED Testing Service will offer individualized online support starting in late November.
The credential test, which kicks in in January, will be more rigorous and offered exclusively on computer.
The new MyGED Web portal allows test-takers to register online, find nearby testing locations, learn about local adult education programs, and take practice tests. Students will get immediate feedback on how they do on the practice tests and suggestions for where to focus their studying to improve.
Under the new model, students will be able to take the five sections of the GED test individually by subject (mathematics, social studies, science, and language arts) over time. They will also receive the results immediately online.
