New GED scoring may help test takers

MICHIGAN — A new change, effective today, could help those who have completed or are currently working towards achieving their GED.

The Michigan Talent Investment Agency and the Workforce Development Agency announced that the passing score for high school equivalency is now 145 instead of 150.

This change immediately helps one thousand test takers in Michigan. This new scoring system is retroactive to January 1st, 2014. Those who scored between 145 and 149 will be notified through e–mail that they passed due to this change.

Michigan is one of 32 states that made this change based on the recommendation of the GED Testing Service.
