$10 GED® TESTING AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME IN KENTUCKY

Jul 07, 2014 - | 12:00 AM -
Kentucky Adult Education (KYAE) has announced that, beginning July 7, 2014, eligible adults may take each module of the GED® test at the reduced rate of $10, as a result of $20 vouchers being provided to eligible individuals.With the use of these limited-time vouchers, the cost of a full GED® test will be only $40. The regular cost of the full battery of GED® testing modules is $120, so this represents an $80 savings to test takers.

“We are really excited for the opportunity for eligible adults to take each GED® test module for just $10,” said Cindy Fiorella, VP Workforce Solutions, Owensboro Community and Technical College. “We encourage everyone to spread the word about this promotion. It will only last as long as vouchers are available from KYAE, so people need to come in as soon as possible.”The current version of the GED® test was launched by the GED Testing Service™ in January 2014. The test, which is computer-based, consists of four modules: Reasoning Through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies. This test allows for individual content modules to be taken one at time.

“We know that passing the GED® test opens doors to the future by helping adults prepare for college and job training and to get better jobs,” said Fiorella. “We want as many of our eligible residents to take advantage of this opportunity as possible.” OCTC’s SkillTrain offers free classes to help adults earn their GED® diploma.
