In 2014, the test will cost $70 more. You'll take it on a computer and the content is changing as well.
Students who passed portions of the five-part test will not be able to transfer those scores to the new format. The Adult Education Center is urging students to finish all five parts now.
The director says the rising cost may be too much for some, and others unfamiliar with computers might find that an obstacle as well. He says getting a GED, sooner, rather than later, is the best option.
On the positive side, the content changed could help better prepare students for furthering their educations, and the computerized test may offer more multiple choice questions.
