Assessment Guide for Educators
(Updated: June 2016)

The Assessment Guide for Educators is a frontline resource for adult educators and administrators to better understand the new GED® assessment from the ground up. We dissect the new assessment and explain the decisions behind new item types, assessment targets, and other issues.

The new assessment continues to measure high school equivalency. But it doesn’t stop there. GED Testing Service takes a giant step forward by measuring skills associated with success in a variety of pathways, including college coursework and job training programs.

The Assessment Guide for Educators guides you through the new assessment and highlights item types, assessment targets, guidelines for how items are scored, and much more.
