State officials are delaying the rollout of a computer-based high school equivalency test until at least early next year. And because of that, a planned increase in testing fees will be delayed as well. The fees will stay at $95 to take the full GED.

The national organization that designs and delivers the test says it needs more time to resolve operational and technical issues with the computer version of the GED.

The Technical College System gives the test in Georgia. Officials say there are more than 1.3 million adult Georgians without a high school or GED diploma. But nearly 20-thousand passed the test last year.
