Ch-Ch-Ch Changes In the High School Equivalency Exam
State officials in Montana have dropped their longtime high school equivalency exam and will be going with a new test from a different company and here’s why! The state made its decision after General Education Development Test, a new for-profit corporation formed by the American Council on Education and textbook company Pearson — planned to more than double the cost of the GED exam in 2014!! That would raise it to $120. Currently it costs just $55 to take the test.
Last week, Juneau recommended that the Montana Board of Public Education enter into a contract with Educational Testing Service to develop a new Montana high school equivalency exam.
