Dear GED Testing Service®: This is the first time you’ve created a promotion which my adult education program was not able to participate in.

February was a busy month for the GED Testing Service team. Here’s a recap of some of presentations and professional development sessions we did around the country.
2016 was a year of great accomplishment regarding the GED® test. Based on a series of analyses done in 2015, GED Testing Service was able to recommend and implement a recalibration of the GED® test cut scores and performance levels. As part of that process we reset the minimum passing score for high school equivalency to 145 and replaced the GED® with Honors performance standard with two new performance levels, GED® College Ready (CR) and GED® College Ready + Credit (CR + credit). Colleges around the country began to evaluate these performance levels and began to implement them–a process we expect will continue and accelerate this year.
