The online GED test
Sitting for the Connecticut GED exam over the internet was not an option. You had to come, in person, to one of the official GED testing sites when you wanted to earn your Connecticut high school equivalency credential.
Now that has all changed with the introduction of a new, online, proctored GED test. An online proctor will guide you through the test-taking process. To learn more, check out this post: Introducing the online proctored GED exam.
Who is the GED exam for?
The GED (General Education Development) program is set up to give adults who have not completed high school another possibility to obtain a diploma that compares to a high school degree.
The certificate that is awarded after successful completion of the Connecticut GED test is recognized and accepted as equivalent to a high school diploma by state and federal official institutions, employers, and colleges across the nation.
Stamford Public Schools GED Prep Classes
Stamford Public Schools’ Adult & Continuing Education Program prepares adult students to pass the 4-part, computer-based GED test and earn their State of Connecticut GED diplomas.
In addition to the basic computer and keyboarding skills required to take the exam successfully, the students receive instruction that covers the topics of the four exams. Upon registration for the program, a diagnostic test will be administered for proper placement.
Based on these results, students receive instruction at an appropriate level. To be able to be placed in GED classes, the applicants have to reach at least a 236 score on the placement test. Students that don’t reach that level will first have to attend an Adult Basic Education (ABE) course in math, reading, and writing until they reach the minimally required level to successfully attend the GED prep course.
To register for the GED prep course and sit for the Connecticut GED test, applicants need to be Connecticut residents who are 17 years old or older. 17-year old applicants must be officially withdrawn from their school schools for at least six (6) months and submit an official withdrawal form signed by a parent/guardian.
Applicants 18 years old can submit (instead of a withdrawal form) a statement signed by the high school they last attended that their 9th-grade class has graduated.
In Connecticut, GED testers are not required to attend a prep course before they can sit for the GED test, but attaining a satisfactory result on the official practice test GED Ready is mandated to qualify for the Connecticut GED test. There is a GED Ready test for each subject exam.
So all applicants looking to register for the official Connecticut GED exam are required to first pass the 4 GED Ready practice tests that are available on the website GED.com.
Connecticut GED price tag
Connecticut subsidized GED testing. For all GED test-takers 21 years of age and over, there’s a $13 fee. Applicants younger than 21 pay nothing. Upon successful results on all four (4) modules, test-takers are awarded the Connecticut High School Diploma. Stamford Adult Education’s programs serve students from Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Westport, Weston, and Wilton. GED prep classes are offered in both morning and evening sessions.
