GED Testing Program

Beginning in January 2014, a newly overhauled GED is being used in Colorado.  Colorado uses GED to issue High School Equivalency Diplomas, and with the 2014 GED aligned to more rigorous standards, having this diploma will reflect test taker's readiness for postsecondary education and the workforce.  The Colorado GED Testing Program provides oversight and resources to GED Testing Centers in the state of Colorado, as well as information and resources for test takers.

Provide Comment by Dec. 5th - DRAFT High School Equivalency Examination (HSEE) Policy Manual

The Colorado Department of Education has drafted a High School Equivalency Examination Policy Manual outlining the policies and procedures for the administration of the GED test as the high school equivalency examination at testing centers approved by the state and GED Testing Service.  The General Education Development (GED) test from GED Testing Service is the State Board approved high school equivalency examination used as the qualifying instrument for the awarding of the Colorado High School Equivalency Diploma.  The HSEE Policy Manual is in draft form as CDE solicits feedback from important stakeholders.  Please review the HSEE Policy Manual here and if you have ideas on how to improve, please contact Michelle Camacho Liu at with comments by December 5th.
