The Latest and Greatest: GED® News and Updates!

In case you didn’t know, GED Testing Service has a monthly blog called In-session. By subscribing you will receive the latest updates, resources and tools related to the GED®. In addition, each month, In-Session features questions sent to them from educators around the country. If you have a question you would like to submit to the Ask GED Testing Service column, you can email it [email protected] and your question may be featured! The following are recently shared updates from In-Session.

Publishers Alignment

Now you can see if your current instructional materials are aligned to the GED® test. The GED® Publisher Program recognizes GED® test-aligned content from publishers who develop curriculum materials for the GED® test. To ensure that materials meet 100% of GED® test objectives, a professional content review organization has evaluated each product’s alignment to GED® test objectives. Alignment is determined at a subject area level rather than at a publisher level.

The updated reference sheets were mailed to testing centers and can be used immediately.
