On January 1st, 2014 Kenai Peninsula College will be experiencing a major change in curriculum within their GED program.
By Federal Government standards the way the GED test is administered nationwide will have all new material and an all new process.
We spoke with Suzie Kendrick at KPC to explain what this could mean to you.
Kendrick: ” The GED changes are coming as of January 1st. Here at KPC, the Kenai River Campus, the Learning Center where our GED s are administered, they’re asking folks to complete their GED testing by Dec. 20th in order to make sure it will be relevant to the existing GED whereas the new 2014 standards will be coming in Jan. 1st 2014″.
Kendrick said there’s a major reason why people that have started their GED testing need to finish the test as soon as possible.
Kendrick: “Come the first of the year, everything is being thrown out and all of the new standards are coming in and the reason that’s an issue is there’s three different tests for the GED its broken down to math, reading comprehension and everything else. The rub is, is that if someone has done two of three tests and say they’re still working on math which tends to be the one people have the most trouble with, they will have missed the boat and all of that work that they had done on those other two tests will no longer be applicable.”
