2007 GED Testing Program Statistical Report
GED Testing Service
The "2007 GED[R] Testing Program Statistical Report" is the 50th annual report in the program's 66-year history of providing a second opportunity for adults without a high school diploma to earn their jurisdiction's GED credential, and, as a result, advance their educational, personal, and professional aspirations. Section I, "Who Lacks a High School Diploma and Who Took the GED Tests?," describes the potential need for high school equivalency credentials among adults and a description of the population of adults without a high school diploma who took the GED Tests in the report year. Section II, "Who Passed the GED Tests?", provides demographic and test score summaries for adults who passed the GED Tests in the report year. Section III, "Trends in the GED Testing Program," presents trend information about the GED testing program, such as statistics on the use of foreign-language versions and special editions of the GED Tests, and trend information by test series and by jurisdiction since 1943. Section IV, "About the GED Testing Program," includes information about the GED testing program, including the jurisdictional policies for issuing high school equivalency credentials, diplomas, or certificates; GED Testing Service (GEDTS) staff members; GED Administrators and their contact information; and American Council on Education (ACE) and GEDTS board and committee members. Twenty seven appendices are included. (Contains 12 figures, 2 tables, and 5 footnotes.)
