Six issues of the newsletter of the General Educational Development Testing Service discuss developments of interest to users of the Tests of General Educational Development (GED) in the United States and Canada. The feature article of each issue is: (1) "Survey of Testing Centers Reveals Trends in Access to Technology"; (2) "Washington State Correctional Facility Conducts Graduation Ceremony, Offers College Guidance" (William Lisk); (3) "Successful Graduates Say Determination and GED Diploma Opened Future Possibilities" (George E. Aalto); (4) "New Orleans Fire Chief Honored at GEDTS 1999 Summer Conference"; and (5) "2002-series GED Tests: What's New?" (issue number 6). Most of the issues contain a message from the GED Program Director, and all contain a "News and Notes" section that describes interesting events connected with GED use. Three issues contain a graduate profile, four contain "Teaching Tips," and most issues contain some brief program descriptions of interest to GED users and examiners. (SLD)
