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.
Georgia is in a first group of states to begin offering the high school equivalency test -- known as the GED -- on computer. The rollout begins this summer. It’s not an online test, but simply the paper version on computer. Test-takers must still go to a certified location, such as a technical college campus.
