    Students urged to finish GED; changes due in 2014

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...popular_viewed

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Adults who've begun working toward their GED are being urged to finish up this year, before the test for a high school equivalency diploma changes and they have to start all over.

    GED Testing Service will introduce a new version of the test, given nationwide, on Jan. 1, 2014. Developers say the first major changes since 2002 will align the test with the new Common Core curricula adopted by most states to increase college and career readiness. It also will shift test-taking from pencil and paper to computer.

    Thanks for the info. I have a relative who homeschooled the last year, but we still want to get the ged and better not delay. In my town, it's hard to even find the phone number or name of the place that gives them nowadays.
