Earlier this week we told you how students and teachers at one adult education center were preparing for changes to the GED high school equivalency exam.
GED Testing Service has posted some sample items from the new exam online to give an idea what the new test will look like.
The test is moving online, but most of the questions are still multiple choice. Some of the items take advantage of online features, such as dragging items to create a timeline of Anne of Green Gables events or completing a sentence by choosing options from a dropdown menu.
The changes are similar to the online exams being designed for new K-12 Common Core standards.
The items are for the Language Arts, science, mathematics reasoning and social studies exams. The samples don’t include the full range of difficulty of GED test items.
The sample items are posted in both English and Spanish. You can view them online or download them to your computer.
