Fun Ways to Teach for the New Technology-Enhanced GED® Test Items

Imagine yourself in sunny Radford Virginia at a campus tucked between some lovely rolling hills. Welcome to VAILL, either in person or online!

The GED® Test is now offered exclusively on the computer – at authorized testing centers ONLY! – which allows for a few different item types. Most of the test will still remain multiple choice questions with four options. However, many of the new question types look very similar to tools that students and teachers should use in every classroom: GRAPHS and GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS!

You can download interactive or PDF samples of the GED® Test items for use to study or prepare your students. The same or similar questions are also used in the FREE Practice Test.

Note: The FREE Practice Test is NOT the same as GED Ready™: The Official Practice Test.

In this morning’s session, we will play with some OFFLINE instructional activities that can build the skills required to succeed in these new types of GED® questions.

What activities would you add to the list?
