Tens of millions of American adults have not graduated from high school.  Every year, thousands of these non-graduates take “general educational development” tests – the GED – to be considered proficient at the level of a graduate.  

Every 10 years the GED test is updated to meet with current educational standards.  Time is running out for individuals planning to earn their GED before the new test is put into place this January.  

The new test will be digital, focus on critical thinking skills and align closer with Common Core Standards

Current State’s Mark Bashore talks with Katie Stoecker, director of the GED Prep program at the Capital Area Literacy Coalition.
