SWOSU is the First Oklahoma Test Center to Offer Computer-Based GED Test
August 27, 2012
In striving to provide more adult learners throughout the state with a high school credential, the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Assessment Center in Weatherford is partnering with GED Testing Service to offer the General Educational Development (GED) test on computer.
SWOSU is the first test center in Oklahoma to offer computer-based GED testing, according to SWOSU Director of Assessment Jan Noble.
Registration and scheduling is now available to candidates and testing will begin on September 4.
Registering, scheduling and testing on computer will provide a new experience and new benefits for GED test-takers. These new features will improve the GED testing program which is a gateway for adults to find jobs or better paying jobs, enter the workforce or college training programs, and better support themselves and their families.
The GED test on computer is the same test content currently offered on paper. Its accompanying systems will provide an array of new benefits for both SWOSU and GED test-takers. Some of the initial benefits include:
- One-stop online registration and scheduling available 24/7
- Flexible testing appointments for test-takers
- Instant test scores on 4 of 5 content areas
- An introduction of basic keyboarding and computer skills
- Enhanced test security
