GED tests can now be taken on a computer thanks to a partnership between the GED Testing Service and the Bermuda College.

A press statement said that testing launched on February 13th and online registration and scheduling is now available to test-takers.

Randy Trask, president of the company said: “Moving the GED test to computer helps adults demonstrate necessary basic technology skills and makes their testing process easier and more efficient.

“We are so pleased that Bermuda is our partner in this important endeavour.”

Several new services will streamline the testing process and benefit adult learners who often need to move very quickly into jobs or training programs.

These benefits include:

  • Online scheduling and registration that is available 24/7
  • More testing flexibility for test-takers: They can choose when and where to take their test
  • Instant unofficial score reports: Faster results mean adults can apply for jobs or immediately begin studying if they need to retake a subject area
  • Enhanced test security

The test is now available at Bermuda College and is the same test as the one offered with paper and pencil.

The statement said: “Whether a candidate takes the test on paper or computer, it must be taken in person at an official GED testing center.

“The GED test is never offered online. States currently offering the GED test on computer are preparing for the new 2014 GED test, which will only be available on computer.”
