CTB – McGraw – Hill may have had problems administering the ISTEP test earlier this year but those problems weren’t enough to keep the state from hiring them to run the replacement for the GED test in Indiana.
Indiana is one of several dozen states that have been looking for an alternative since Pearson, the company that owns the rights to the GED, announced plans to make the exam available only online and at nearly double the price. That would have boosted the cost of the GED from $70 today to $120 starting next year.
The new exam is likely to cost less than $70. To learn more about Test Assessing Secondary Completion or TASC exam or to find adult education classes visit www.in.gov/adulted.htm.
