Testing Update: New Information about the Online Proctored GED Test Pilot

The Online Proctored GED Test pilot program has launched and students are actively registering for test dates and taking their GED test subjects from home.

In our recent follow-up webinar, we shared additional information about the pilot and how educators can help prepare their students for this testing option.

In the second webinar we also share the following:

  • Timing and revised phases
  • States by pilot phases
  • Additional resources
  • Visual overview of the eligible student experience 

Our GED.com webpage also includes the first webinar with links to a full system check, slide decks for each presentation, a list of states by pilot phases and a test policy fact sheet. 

We recently published an article for students to answer some frequently asked questions and to share an overview of this pilot program including eligibility and testing requirements. Students can also view a short video that shares this information and what to expect on test day.

I have a GED ready score from the practice test, had my test cancelled because of this pandemic. I do not know why I did not get an email from the GED to take the test? I’m pretty sure I qualify. I try to schedule the test to take in person and all I get is a strange ERROR_VUE_WIDE_BLOCK. I’m guessing the Miami area for the test centers is not open. I would love a nice answer to clarify and explain what do I have to do to qualify to take the test online. I just wanna take the test and move on.
