Adults taking a GED test in Lincoln, Hastings and Norfolk will soon have the option to answer all of the questions on computers.
Nebraska Department of Education administrators announced that they will offer the new, computer-based tests starting June 25. The remaining 28 Nebraska-based testing centers will allow computerized GED testing no later than January.
Nebraska adult education state director Vicki Bauer says the computerized system expands access to the GED tests and will help more adults find jobs. Bauer says the new system offers better security, more flexible scheduling for test-takers, and instant scores in four out of the five content areas.
The GED test still must be taken in-person at an official testing center. Computerized GED testing will cost $24 for each content area.
