High School Credentialing in Wisconsin. Forum: Responding to Changes in High School Equivalency Testing
Panzer, Willa; Johnson, Mark; Lewis, Beth
Journal of Research and Practice for Adult Literacy, Secondary, and Basic Education, v4 n3 p44-47 Win 2015
Wisconsinites interested in pursuing a high school credential rely on the unique collaboration between the State GED Administrator at the Wisconsin Department of Instruction (DPI), the State Director of Adult Basic Education (ABE) and staff of the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS), and the many providers of instruction throughout the state. While the WTCS is the primary provider of Adult Basic Education in Wisconsin, all high school credentialing is approved by the State Superintendent and the DPI. Successful completion of the tests of General Educational Development (GED) results in the awarding of a Certificate of General Educational Development. This article describes additional and unique options that exist in Wisconsin for earning a High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED). As one of three briefs in this issue's "Forum: Responding to Changes in High School Equivalency Testing," this article offers a snap shot of Wisconsin's response to providing instruction and assessment that reflect the latest surge in what it takes for adults to prosper. [For the other two articles in this Forum, see EJ1083364 and EJ1083366.]
