The GED test has remained largely unchanged since its introduction in the mid-1940’s. Originally designed as a means for World War II servicemen to earn their high school credential upon returning home from the war, the test grew in popularity and was made available to the public in the 1950’s. Since that time, the GED test has been updated roughly every ten years with timely changes in content and structure. It has always, however, been a paper/pencil-delivered test.  That is about to change.  We are now in the final academic year of the current GED test administration, as we know it. Beginning in early 2013, the GED Testing Service will begin transitioning into computer-based GED testing. Full implementation will be complete on January 1st, 2014 at which time paper/pencil tests will no longer be available. The cost of the new test will increase from $80 to $120. The computer-based test will be slightly shorter (roughly 7 hours), but the content will be more rigorous as reflected in the Common Core State Standards.  The time to earn your GED credential is now! If you or someone you know has been considering going back to school to earn a GED credential, we strongly encourage you to do so NOW before the new test is upon us.  Please feel free to call Darlington County Adult Ed at any time for more information on the new GED test and how we can help you earn your high school credential before time runs out on the current test series.  We are here to serve you. Together, we can achieve excellence! Chuck Miller, Director Darlington County Adult Ed (843) 398-2856
