Indiana and several dozen other states are looking for an alternative to the GED high school equivalency test because of concerns that a new version coming out next year is more costly and will no longer be offered in a pencil and paper format.
There are only two companies that make the GED test.
They are looking and dropping the paper version and going electronic.
The const is expected to more than double to as high as $140 per test.
Meanwhile, Tennessee and New Jersey are exploring offering more than one test.
Some states subsidize some or all of the expense of the exam, while others add an administrative fee.
Some of those that need to take the test raise concerns by saying that to take the test electronically they would also have to know how to type and operated a computer.
