SUCCESS ON THE GED TEST NOW JUST CLICKS AWAY IN EL PASO
?Adults expected to benefit from new computerized testing
In striving to offer more adults without a high school diploma an opportunity to obtain a high school credential as well as basic technology skills, El Paso Community College is partnering with www.GEDtestingservice.com GED Testing Service to offer the GED test on computer. Online registration and scheduling is now available to test-takers and testing began on April 15, 2013.
“The GED test on computer provides a more flexible and efficient testing experience for adult learners who often need to move very quickly into jobs or training programs,” said Randy Trask, president of GED Testing Service. “Over the past year we’ve found that adults who test on computer score higher and finish the exam faster, and we’re excited that the largest paper-based GED testing center in the country is now offering the test on computer.”
Texas joins 39 states that have begun offering the GED test on computer since early 2012. Adult learners across the country have taken advantage of the new benefits, such as online scheduling and registration, instant unofficial score reports, and increased testing flexibility. GED Testing Service studied results from more than 40,000 computerized GED tests given in 2012 and found significantly www.gedtestingservice.com/uploads/files/8c34da640e5ed8529060e569e79ab43e.pdf positive results for test-takers. GED Testing Service’s findings included:
Adults who tested on computer had an 88 percent pass rate compared to 71 percent for those who tested on paper.
Adults who tested on computer completed their exams in approximately 5.5 hours compared to 8 on paper.
Adults who tested on computer were also 59 percent more likely to retake a failed test instead of giving up and dropping out of the testing program.
Cindy Compean, EPCC GED Manager said, “The El Paso Community College Testing Center is excited and looking forward in providing the community with the opportunity by now offering the GED Test via computer. Our first test-taker did extremely well receiving the 800 maximum score a person can obtain on their GED on one of the subject test.”
