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.
