GED lowers standards

January 28, 2016

 

      Earning a GED just got easier.

      The company that administers g-e-d testing for many states has lowered the score it takes to pass each subject area from 150 to 145.

      Officials say data shows students who took the GED test were being held to a higher academic standard than their counterparts in high school.

      The testing service also recommends states grant a GED to students who have taken the test since January 1st, 2014, and scored at least 145 in each subject area.
