The GED Experience: Reaching Out to People. Final Evaluation Report of Iowa's Experimental GED Test Structure.
This report describes the structure, format, and processes of Iowa's General Educational Development (GED) test center structure and presents the results, conclusions, and recommendations from an evaluation of that structure. The major purposes of the evaluation were to assess the effectiveness of Iowa's new statewide GED structure, determine strategies to improve the structure, and provide input for further planning and evaluation. Statistical and narrative information was gathered to improve testing services to GED candidates. The evaluation areas included the volume of GED traffic through parent, satellite, and transportation centers; the accessibility of testing centers to GED candidates; the cost effectiveness of the testing program; administration of the new GED structure; and test security. Narrative and statistical summaries are presented for each area. (DWH)
