What is computer-based testing (CBT)?
Computer-based testing is a simple and better way to offer the GED® test. It allows testing centers to offer a more consistent test delivery, faster scoring and reporting, and enhanced test security.
- Testing is done in person, on a computer, at an approved testing center
- Testing is not online
- Similar to paper testing centers, computer-based testing centers are reviewed and approved to ensure test-takers receive the best, fairest experience possible for their test
- Training for jurisdiction and test center administrators is included in set up of a new testing center
- Testing centers can use desktop computers or laptop computers, as long as minimum requirements are met
- Only 2 computers are required to become a testing center
Computer-based testing is the standard for many other test delivery programs. And as technology continues to advance, it is also becoming the standard format for most of the key K-12 assessment programs.
