ATTENTION! GED® Test Changing!

• All public test centers in Texas began administering a new GED® on computer in January 2014.
• Correctional test centers have been given a waiver to continue administering the old GED® test on paper.
• WSD is gearing up to begin administering the new GED® test on computer. Scores from the paper-based test cannot be combined with the computer-based test.
• If you leave WSD without taking the paper-based GED®, your only option to test will be online.

If you qualify for the GED®, take the paper-based test and pass while you still have the opportunity.


ATENCIÓN! Cambios en el examen para GED®!
