Indiana Selects New High School Equivalency Credential Exam
Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Commissioner Scott B. Sanders announced recently the intention to execute a contract with CTB/McGraw-Hill to provide a new high school equivalency assessment that will replace the General Educational Development (GED) test. The new assessment will ensure Indiana offers a high school equivalency test that matches employer demand and is both affordable and accessible. The new test, which all Indiana providers will begin utilizing in 2014, will be aligned to College and Career Readiness Standards over the next few years and will gradually increase in rigor to better meet industry demand. In order to maintain accessiblity, the new exam will continue to be offered in both paper and computer-based formats. Students who successfully pass the test will obtain an Indiana High School Equivalency Diploma. The student registration and test administration processes are still being developed. Harrison County Lifelong Learning anticipates high school equivalency testing will be available across Region 10 by mid March.
