GED Exam Retiring After 7 Decades

After seven decades the state is preparing to replace the GED test.

For generations students and adults have tackled the test which is an alternative credential to a high school diploma.

The GED exam stands for General Educational Development.

But starting in January Louisiana students will take a different exam.

A division of Educational Testing Service — called HiSET — will start administering its own high school equivalency test on English, math, science and other areas.

The one key reason for the change — GED officials will soon be offering computer-only tests.

Debbie O’Connor, executive director of The Greater Baton Rouge Literacy Coalition, tells The Advocate some potential test takers would be put off by a computer test.
