Important: Finish Your GED® Test Now
If you have not completed your GED® tests by the end of the year, you will have to start over in January 2014 with the new 2014 GED® test series.
Many people who did not finish high school have the same knowledge and skills as those who did graduate. By taking and passing a series of five tests in Language Arts Writing, Social Studies, Science, Language Arts Reading, and Mathematics, adults can demonstrate they have acquired the same level of knowledge. Information about each content area and subtest is available on the GED Testing Service Web site.
Most colleges and employers accept a GED® credential as being equivalent to a high school diploma. Each year more than 14,000 Washington residents earn their GED® credentials.
The State Board for Community and Technical Colleges oversees the GED® testing program for the State of Washington. Those who meet the eligibility requirements may take the GED® Tests at official test centers located throughout the state. The test centers are responsible for registering, scheduling, and administering the tests for their area.
2015 HSE Exam Request for Information
In October, the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges conducted a Request for Information (RFI) for High School Equivalency (HSE) exams. Vendors responded to several specific questions for the RFI, and the vendors included much of the same information at the vendor presentations on October 17, 2013. Current and future HSE exams have many components and are a stepping stone to college and employment for over 15,000 people in our state every year.
The complete RFI response for each vendor is posted below along with a survey link to collect feedback from stakeholders for the RFI responses and presentations.
The survey will be open until November 13, 2013.
