What is computer-based testing (CBT)?
Computer-based testing is a simple, easy way to offer the GED® test. It allows for more consistent delivery, scoring, reporting, and security.
Currently, 39 million Americans lack a high school diploma. Computer-based testing is a test delivery method that improves access to the GED® testing program today and gives us innovative new information for tomorrow’s educators and test-takers. Offering the GED® test on computer will improve the testing experience for thousands of people that depend on it to open doors to training, education, and careers.
Computer-based testing is the standard for many other assessments. It will become the standard for all key K-12 assessments in the future. Familiarity with technology is expected in almost every career path, regardless of age. It is time for the GED® testing program to add this delivery method to the GED® testing program.
The GED® test on computer can be offered anywhere that has Internet access, two computers, and a security package!
