Putting Education Reform To The Test

Florida GED Goes Digital


Students take a GED test on paper.

Florida is modernizing its alternative to a high school diploma with a computer-based GED test.

The GED Testing Service is partnering with five Florida counties to offer registration, scheduling and testing on a computer.

The new GED is available in Alachua, Citrus, Escambia, Highlands and Walton counties.

The goal is to make the process easier for adults earning their high school diploma.

Applicants can go online any time of day to register and schedule an appointment. Users can choose from flexible appointment windows and get their test results quickly.

The computer-based test contains the same content as the traditional test.

Anyone who wants to take the GED online or on paper can visit GED Testing Service and type in a zip code for a list of testing centers.

Florida is also adding more computer-based exams to the battery of Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests and end-of-course exams taken by K-12 students.
