Good news from the School District of Palm Beach County! The new GED® 2014 test has been overhauled to better prepare adults to earn a high school diploma, paving their way to enter higher education programs, and access better jobs with better wages (For more information on getting involved for yourself or passing on information to those you know will benefit through this program go to www.palmbeachschools.org/ace/GED2014.asp).

The GED® 2014 test is entirely computer-based with multiple choice, short answer and essay questions. It consists of four (4) test modules: Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies. Each test costs $32 and can be taken separately. The total cost for all 4 test modules is $128. The GED® test is available in Spanish. Testing begins January 6, 2014.

Some new features online are the availability to take an official practice test that shows test-takers their strengths and where they need to improve, including specific pages to study in their training materials at home and online. A one-stop resource for test registration, test preparation, and more. Tools to develop personalized study plans and find study materials or in-person classes. A skills assessment to help test-takers match skills with possible careers, and focus on career plans to get to better jobs with better wages. Access to information and resources to help test-takers apply for college or training programs and fill out financial aid forms.

Although the test is computer-based, it is not done through the internet; students must take the test at an authorized testing center. The Department of Adult and Community Education (ACE) of the School District of Palm Beach County is the official GED® testing center for Palm Beach County.

ACE offers GED® classes to prepare students for the new GED® test in 2014. GED® classes are conveniently available online and on-site at more than 30 locations. GED® classes are also available in Spanish. Tuition fees per semester are $30 for Florida residents/$120 for non-Florida residents. Students enrolled in GED® or ESOL classes receive free Career Pathways counseling. The next semester of GED® classes begins January 13, 2014 and runs through to April 17, 2014. Class registration begins January 6, 2014.

The GED® test is the only high school equivalency program fully aligned to state college and career readiness standards; for information on GED® classes and GED® testing, visit www.GEDyes.com or call 561-649-6010.
