    Hello everyone! I want to share some news news coming from KY Adult Education!

    On January 26, 2016, GED Testing Service® (GEDTS®) announced that,
    after extensive analysis of test-taker’s performance data from the past 18 months, the passing
    score for high school equivalency was reset from 150 to 145. This change was retroactive to
    scores earned since January 1, 2014.
    In addition, two optional levels above high school equivalency were added:
    • GED® College Ready (165 – 174)
    • GED® College Ready + Credit (175 – 200)
    These are performance level designations recommended by GEDTS® to signify readiness to enter credit-bearing classes and may qualify students at the upper level for college credit. These may be considered at the discretion of post secondary education institutions.

    This is wonderful news as it has allowed KVEC Adult Education to better serve our students and our community. So many of our students past and present have worked tirelessly to pass the GED Ready and GED Test and came up a point short. They are now being rewarded! Please pass this information along to your schools and/or anyone needing to obtain their GED. Now is the time!
