GED HiSET and TASC

Release Date: 2015
Genre:

Until January 2014, the General Educational Development (GED) was the only option for youth and adults lacking a high school diploma, but needing a high school credential to pursue employment opportunities or postsecondary education. However, in January 2014, some states began administering one or both alternatives to the GED--the Educational Testing Service (ETS) HiSET and the CTB/McGraw Hill Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC). This Education Commission of the States trends report provides a comparison of these three assessments' features, aspects of testing programs states have weighed when deciding which high school equivalency exam to offer and the decision-making process states have used to select one or more alternatives to the GED. Key Takeaways from this brief are: (1) Seventeen states are offering the HiSET and/or TASC in addition to or in lieu of the GED; (2) The GED, HiSET and TASC vary in length, item type, formats available and cost; and (3) States have generally been using a request for proposal or related selection and procurement process to select vendors for high school equivalency exams.

Confronting Oppressive Assessments

Author: Walter S. Dr. Polka, Ph.D
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield
ISBN: 9781475826821
Release Date: 2016-09-14
Genre: Education

This book is about doing what’s right for public education in the United States in this age of intensive curriculum convergence, planned instructional standardization, and oppressive accountability procedures. Information is presented about why and how educators, parents, students, community members, and policy-makers have decided to protest against current state and federal educational policies and procedures. The practical experiences of parents, teachers, principals, school superintendents, school board members, and professors are analyzed in chapters of this book. Their first-hand experiences with the various components of the current reform movement are poignantly presented. Through their voices the frustrations with the serious flaws associated with this reform agenda are passionately and logically articulated. They comprehensively explain their personal and professional motivations for organizing and fomenting a rethinking in school reform implementation procedures and they advocate their “smarter approach” to school reforms in our country. The book includes key references that elucidate the need to seriously re-think the directions and strategies of contemporary schooling in order to maintain enlightened creative instruction based on exciting student-centered curriculum experiences and professional educational judgments.

Turning Points

Author: Alisa Belzer
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781119443780
Release Date: 2017-10-16
Genre: Education

Milestones for adult basic education include: It was first federally funded in 1964. The National Literacy Act passed in 1991. The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998 was enacted. The field then remained relatively static until 2014 when: a new version of the GED® test was launched, new content standards were developed, new data on adult cognitive skills were released, and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), with its laser focus on employment and training, was enacted. This volume reviews where the field is in relation to these turning points and discusses where it could go. Taking up critical discussions of the many recent and influential changes as well as topics of enduring interest, this volume will be valuable to practitioners, researchers, and policy makers. This is the 155th volume of the Jossey Bass series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education. Noted for its depth of coverage, it explores issues of common interest to instructors, administrators, counselors, and policymakers in a broad range of education settings, such as colleges and universities, extension programs, businesses, libraries, and museums.

America s Forgotten Student Population

Author: Angela Long
Publisher: Stylus Publishing, LLC
ISBN: 9781620361429
Release Date: 2014-04-17
Genre: Education

Constituting one in twelve of adult Americans, GED certificate holders comprise a major pool of underdeveloped human capital in our society. They are a resource that will be sorely needed as “boomers” reach retirement and the traditional pipeline of 17 – 23 year olds falls short of filling our growing workforce needs. Although these nontraditional students can potentially meet our future workforce demands, and although half of them enter post-secondary education, half of those who do so drop out of college for lack of basic support systems – often at the very same institutions that provided programs of retention while they were earning their GED and completing basic Adult Education classes. Yet national data collected by the National Center for Educational Statistics reveals that GED certificate holders who persist to their second year of community college studies accumulate grade point averages equal to high school graduates, refuting widely held beliefs that GED earners are not capable of rigorous academic work. This is the first book to remedy the dearth of data on this forgotten population, to present original research on these students, describing their characteristics and motivations, and to provide proven models for identifying, retaining and graduating this under-counted and underestimated cohort. It addresses the issue of the pipeline from GED centers to postsecondary education, and includes first-person narratives that offer vivid insights into GED earners’ resilience and needs. As this book reveals, more than 40 percent of community colleges responding to a 2010 ACT survey have no one responsible for coordinating retention efforts; and more than half have no goals for first-year student retention; and estimates that community colleges are cumulatively foregoing over $1.5 billion in revenues as the result of failing to retain their GED populations. This book is a comprehensive resource for college administrators, and for educational policy makers and researchers, offering both broad policy recommendations and tested ideas and models that can be implemented at the state and institutional level.
