HARRISBURG, Pa., March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Acting Secretary of Education Carolyn Dumaresq today announced that the Department of Education is currently finalizing the process for those Pennsylvanians who successfully completed one or more sections of the 2002 GED exam to carry over those scores to the 2014 GED test in order to obtain a Commonwealth Secondary School Diploma.
In January, the national GED Testing Service replaced its 2002 exam with the 2014 GED. This resulted in more than 43,000 Pennsylvania test takers, who did not successfully complete all five sections of the 2002 exam by Dec. 31, 2013, having to restart the testing process in January.
For the past several months, the department has worked with Rep. Joe Hackett (R-Delaware), sponsor of House Bill 1931, and Rep. Hal English (R-Allegheny), sponsor of House Bill 1930, to develop a way for passing scores from the prior exam to be transferred to the new test.
"I want to thank Representative Hackett and Representative English for working with the department to find a solution that will benefit thousands of residents across the state," Dumaresq said. "This change will allow those affected to only take the parts that are necessary to obtain their GED."
As the department finalizes this procedure, it will be working with testing sites across the state to ensure they have the necessary information to share with affected test takers.
