Outcomes of GED Graduation: An Annotated Bibliography of Research Reports.
Johnson, Mark; Valentine, Thomas
This annotated bibliography includes a separate entry for each of 57 research reports written about the General Educational Development (GED) tests. For inclusion, documents were required to meet three criteria. They must: (1) focus on outcomes of GED graduation; (2) present some form of empirical, research-based evidence concerning the outcomes of GED graduation; and (3) constitute a primary research report rather than a secondary commentary on someone else's report. The documents are arranged in chronological order, from 1953 to 1992. Each annotation provides this information: title; author(s); date; publication information; overview; methodology; summary of findings; and critique of study. A preface reaches the conclusion that of the 57 "flawed" tests of the GED, the GED passed at least 40 of them with flying colors. Author and subject indexes are appended. These subjects are indexed: affective outcomes, education outcomes, economic outcomes, family-related outcomes, and military performance. (YLB)
