George-Ezzelle, Carol E.; Hsu, Yung-chen
GED Testing Service
This study compares performance on the GED (General Educational Development) Tests, U.S. edition, across three groups of examinees: (1) graduating high school seniors in the GED U.S., 2001 norm group, (2) GED Tests candidates who took one or more tests in the United States between 2002 and 2004, and (3) GED Tests candidates who passed the tests in the United States between 2002 and 2004. By comparing graduating high school seniors and GED Tests examinees, this report provides evidence of the academic value of the GED credential. The results should be useful primarily to employers and admissions officers evaluating applicants who have a credential based on passing the tests. Additionally, adult education administrators and teachers can use this information when planning and developing instructional programs for GED Tests candidates. [For the full report, see ED510069.]
