SFSC Testing Center Offers the GED Test on Computer

Submitted by on July 16, 2012 – 9:11 amNo Comment

Students and residents of SFSC’s service district can now take the GED test on computer at the Testing Center on the Highlands Campus. To provide more adult learners throughout Florida with a high school credential, the SFSC Testing Center is partnering with GED Testing Service in this effort. Registration and scheduling begins July 16, and testing begins July 30.

Registering, scheduling and testing on computer will provide a new experience and new benefits for GED test-takers. These new features will improve the GED testing program which is a gateway for adults to find jobs or better paying jobs, enter the workforce or college training programs, and better support themselves and their families.

“Adult learners often times juggle jobs, families, study time and transportation issues,” said Randy Trask, GED Testing Service president and CEO. “GED testing on computer will be a significant step to make the scheduling and testing experience easier, more flexible and faster for adult learners across Florida and eventually the country. We are so pleased that SFSC Testing Center is our partner in this endeavor.”

The GED test on computer is the same test content currently offered on paper. It will provide an array of new benefits for both the testing center and GED test-takers. Some of the initial benefits include:

  • One-stop online registration and scheduling available 24/7
  • Flexible testing appointments for test-takers
  • Instant test scores on four of five content areas
  • An introduction of basic keyboarding and computer skills
  • Enhanced test security

“The GED test on computer gives students more options for when they can take the entire exam and/or the individual sub-tests,” said MaryAnn Little, SFSC director of testing and assessment. “One of the best aspects of this new format is the ability for students to get immediate (unofficial) results of their tests. We’re so happy to be a part of the process that moves students a giant step toward reaching their goals.”
