We conducted a pilot study to see how the GED Mathematics Test could be administered on computer with embedded accessibility tools. We examined test scores and test-taker experience. Nineteen GED test centers across five states and 216 randomly assigned GED Tests candidates participated in the project. GED candidates completed two GED mathematics practice test forms and a survey. In the survey we asked students to report demographic information, information about their use of computers, and their preferences about taking tests on computers. Results showed that participants were neither advantaged nor disadvantaged by taking the GED Mathematics Test on a computer. (Contains 7 tables.)
