GED Testing Program

In January 2014, a newly overhauled GED began being used in Colorado.  Colorado uses the GED to issue High School Equivalency Diplomas, and with the updated 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.


GED Resources for Students and Educators

A summary of resources has been compiled for students and educators exploring the GED exam as a pathway to earning the High School Equivalency Diploma.  This summary of resources includes information on the exam, how to schedule, preparation materials, and professional development materials.  Click here to view the GED Resources for Students and Educators document.
