State officials urge GED participants to finish this year
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ State officials are urging Nebraskans working on their GED certificates to finish their task this year or they'll have to start over next year with a new series.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/Pu0WWf) that nearly 10,000 Nebraskans are working on their GED diplomas in place of high school diplomas.
A Nebraska Education Department official says the GED Testing Service will release a new series of tests next year, so test results on the current series
won't be valid.
Department director of adult education Vicki Bauer says ``there's no
grandfathering of scores, because it changes so dramatically.''
The GED certificate is earned by passing tests on reading, writing, social studies, science and math.
