News Release - Online GED Testing Now Available

Sept. 10, 2012

News Release

Taking the GED test is now just a few clicks away

To provide more Colorado adult learners with a high school credential and basic technology skills, the Colorado Department of Education is partnering with GED Testing Service to offer the high school equivalency test on computer. Online registration and scheduling is now available to test-takers.

The new testing process is streamlined and offers test-takers new options.

  • Online scheduling and registration available 24/7
  • More testing flexibility for test-takers
  • Instant unofficial score reports: Less waiting means adults can apply for jobs or begin studying if they need to retake a subject area
  • Enhanced test security

The computerized test is offered in three of locations with more locations to be added in the future. Testing is now available at:

  • Arapahoe Community College, Littleton
  • Community College of Denver, Denver
  • Otero Junior College, La Junta

Since the launch in January, more than 8,700 computerized GED tests have been delivered in 24 states. GED Testing Service expects more than half of all states to offer the test on computer by the end of the year.

The GED test on computer is the same test currently offered using the old paper-and-pencil model. Whether a candidate takes the test on paper or computer, it must be taken in person at an official GED testing center. States offering the GED test on computer are preparing for the new 2014 GED test, which will only be available on computer.
