The GED and Minority Language Groups
Anderson, Laurel
Journal of Research and Practice for Adult Literacy, Secondary, and Basic Education, v4 n3 p57-64 Win 2015
A recent overhaul to the GED exam has made it significantly more difficult for all students to pass, further adding to the burden of those who must take it in a second language. The revamped 2014 version of the exam highlights the need for accommodations for speakers of minority languages who must take the test in English. In fact, there is plenty of precedent and research to make a compelling case for why and how GED Testing Service should better support all non-native English speakers.
