GED passing score is lowered!
On January 25th, 2016, GED Testing Service® (GEDTS®) announced changes to the GED® scoring. Effective immediately in most states, including Illinois, the passing score for each GED® subject area is now 145 (rather than 150). Additionally, effective March 1, 2016, any test taken since January 1, 2014 with a score between 145-149 will be updated to show that a student has passed that subtest. If this change means a test-taker would have passed the full GED® battery, they will be retroactively credentialed (providing they have passed the Constitution Exam as well as paid the appropriate certificate fees). For more information about this change go to http://GED.com or http://www.gedtestingservice.com/testers/tester-score-change-faqs.
Changes to the GED® cut scores will not be updated in the ILHSE database until mid- to late-March. Test takers will not be able to acquire updated state transcripts or a HSE certificate until the ILHSE database has been reprogrammed and the required certifications have been verified (i.e., Constitution, etc.). The Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) will provide more updates as soon as they are available.
