Back-to-School Resources, Tips, and Reminders
As this new school year begins, we want to share resources, tips, and reminders that will help you and your learners prepare for success.
GEDPrep Connect and GED Manager
GEDPrep Connect is a free tool that helps adult learners who have asked for information about their local adult education program. GEDPrep Connect is a valuable tool to recruit interested adult learners to your education program without spending more on marketing. You can learn more about GEDPrep Connect and GED Manager here.
Through your GED Manager account, you can view the students that have expressed interest in your program. You are also able to manage your enrollments, view student test activities, and more. You can request access to GED Manager by submitting your information here.
*Please note that educators in Virginia do not have access to GED Manager.
New GED Ready Direct Discounted Pricing
The GED Ready Practice test is a valuable tool for learners and is required before testing online. However, we know many GED programs utilize the GED Ready Practice test and struggle with maintaining the voucher codes. To solve voucher challenges, we launched GED Ready Direct through GED Manager earlier this year. While educators love being able to purchase and assign Ready tests directly to their students through GED Manager, we heard that they’d like to see price discounts – especially when purchasing vouchers in large amounts. Through our new tiered pricing model, the more tests you buy the more money you save! Don’t forget that you can share your purchased Ready tests with educators in your program as well. To view this, log in to your GED Manager account here.
OP Test Vouchers Available on GED Marketplace
You can purchase OP test vouchers with a credit card or VUE credit on GED Marketplace and through the VUE Voucher store. Vouchers you have already purchased will also continue to be valid for use with OP tests through December 1, 2021. These vouchers will cover 100% of the cost for OP or in-person testing if used before December 1st. After this date, educators will need separate vouchers for both in-person and OP tests.
Online Proctored (OP) GED Test Changes Coming Sept. 1
On September 1, 2021, the price of the Online Proctored GED test subject will increase by $6 in most states. To check the current pricing of the OP GED test, check here. Students who schedule a test before September 1 will pay the current OP price regardless of their test date. OP test takers will continue to be required to earn a “green” GED Ready score before they are allowed to schedule an OP exam. To learn more about the important changes coming to the OP test, visit here.
We will continue to share updates through email and future InSession newsletters.
