The computer-based version of the GED®
Tests is now available at Kaskaskia College.
Testing Services has collaborated with Pearson VUE Testing Centers to develop and administer the new version of testing.
To register online for the computer-based testing, registrants should visit www.GEDcomputer.com
Registrants will need a credit or debit card to register and schedule their testing.
Pearson VUE for GED® Testing Services manages all registrations.
Kaskaskia College serves only as a test-site for the computer-based GED®
Currently, testing is available from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Fridays.
The paper-pencil version of the GED® testing will remain available to GED test-takers until the month of December. Anyone desiring to take the paper-pencil version of the test should contact their local Regional Office of Education for information about the last day in which the paper-pencil version of the testing will be available through their office. Effective January 2014, all new test-takers must take the computer-based version of the GED® testing.
Incomplete test-takers of the GED® testing are reminded that beginning January 1, 2014, former test scores for any test-taker that did not pass the entire GED® testing will expire at the end of 2013. Incomplete test-takers are urged to enroll in one of Kaskaskia College’s GED® Review classes to build their academic skills to earn their GED® Credentials before the scores expires. GED® Review classes are free, but require pre-registration for completion of the registration, screening, and orientation process for enrollment. Applicants must be at least 17 years of age and not required to be enrolled in a secondary education program. Assistance with employment, career, and college readiness is available through the support services of the department, which includes a GED Scholarship for former students of the program who earn their GED® Credentials, meet the eligibility criteria of the scholarship, and desire to continue their education at Kaskaskia College.
For more information about enrollment in one of KC’s GED® Review classes, the future computer-based testing, and KC’s GED Scholarship, please call 545-3115 or visit the main campus or one of the education centers (Salem, Nashville, Trenton, Vandalia, and Greenville) of Kaskaskia College.
