Computer-based GED exam
The GED exam is entirely computer-formatted and for good reasons. Not only are the results available much faster, but in our contemporary job market, you probably won’t see a vacant position anymore that doesn’t call for at least fundamental keyboarding and computing skills.
This is also the case with entry-level positions so it’s only a good development that exams like the GED have implemented computer-based testing, wouldn’t you agree?
Does certification matter?
Yes, that really matters! When students sign up for a GED prep course that’s entirely aligned with the current, computer-formatted GED test, they can be sure they’ve made a wise decision and that they’re on their way to earning a GED diploma fast and efficiently.
Students that are studying for their GED exam are making investments of money, time, and hope. Chances are they’ll have to spend many hours learning and not being able to be with their families. They’ll spend their money on prep courses, and sitting for the GED exam isn’t free as well in most states. You can learn more about your state here.
So for students, it is important to know that the course of their choice meets the proper criteria, and certification by ProCert Labs guarantees that they will receive top-notch instruction that meets all GED objectives.
Onsego integrates with GED Ready practice tests
When students are signed up for the Onsego GED course, they can take the GED Ready® test and connect their score reports with the lessons provided by Onsego. This way, they will be able to quickly improve their weakest points and their GED test scores. The image offers instructions on how to do it.
This is particularly helpful for students that chose the Onsego My Advantage Plan because that includes free GED Ready vouchers (a $28 value).
GED Ready practice test-what is it?
There are four independent GED sub-exams and for each exam, there is a GED Ready practice test. This practice test is about half the length of the real GED test and it is the only test that predicts if a student is ready for the real thing or if more study is required.
The four GED Ready tests are available at GED.com and can be purchased at $6.99 each. As said before, students that sign up for the Onsego My Advantage Plan will receive vouchers for the four GED Ready tests at no cost.
In some states, GED applicants must first reach satisfactory scores results on the GED Ready test before they are allowed to take the real GED exam.
As stated before, there are four independent sub-exams that make up the GED test (that can be taken one at a time) and there’s a separate GED Ready test for each of the 4 modular tests. GED Ready vouchers can be purchased on the website GED.com but they are free for Onsego My Advantage students.
When students take the GED Ready practice test, their scores can be “Likely to pass” (scores of 159 and up), “Too close to call” (scores in the 143-158 range), or “Unlikely to pass” (score between 100 and 142).
