PRCC welcomes new GED change

FORREST COUNTY, Miss - Pearl River Community College welcomes GED Testing Services' latest announcement of a recalibration of the GED test and the addition of two new performance levels.

The passing score for high school equivalency is moving from 150 to 145. The change will also include two optional levels above high school equivalency to signify college readiness, and for some test-takers the opportunity to earn college credits.

Terri Clark, Director of Adult Education Services mentions, "She is excited on the score change made by GED testing services."

According to the press release, these changes were driven by detailed analysis of educational outcomes of GED graduates compared to High School graduates over the past 18 months.
