Union to launch GED computer-based testing beginning Sept. 5
Union Public Schools will begin offering the option of computer-based testing for the GED test on September 5 at Union’s Adult Education Learning Center, located on the northwest corner of the 9th Grade Center campus, 7616 S. Garnett Road, Broken Arrow.
“Union has entered into an agreement with GED Testing Service and Pearson Vue Authorized Testing Centers to offer computer-based testing for students who may need to complete a GED examination,” said JoAnna Jamison, Director of Adult Education. Under the Pearson Vue arrangement, students will also be able to seek key certifications in the fields of IT, education, health and other fields.
The Union School District will be the first school district in Oklahoma to offer GED testing on computer. “Offering computer-based testing through Pearson Vue will allow Union to lead the way with technology as adult education programs across the nation phase out the paper version of the GED test,” said Linda Mann, GED Chief Examiner. Beginning January 1, 2014, the computer-based GED test will be the only option available to students.
Potential candidates can enroll from the comfort of their own homes and schedule a test during any time slot available at the testing center. A single module (Math, Science, Language Arts, etc.) can be scheduled or the student may elect to take as many as he or she would like per testing session. This gives the student flexibility in setting his or her pace for completion of the entire examination.
