GED Score Change FAQs

The passing score for GED test is now 145 instead of 150.  What this means for you:

  • If you’ve started taking the GED test – or are thinking about it this is great news!
    You’re more likely than ever to earn your diploma!  You now have to score 145 (instead of 150) on each test subject to pass.
  • You won’t see your passing status reflected on your score report until March 1.
    While this score change is effective immediately, your score report won’t be updated until March 1.  Just know that if you earn a 145 or higher on any test subject, you passed!
  • If you scored between 145-149 on a GED test subject in the past, your status has changed from fail to pass.
    Check your email (be sure to check your spam folder too) for a message from MyGED.
  • A few states, including Florida, Arkansas, South Carolina and California are still in the process of adopting this change.
    If you are testing in one of these states that hasn’t yet adopted this change, don’t worry.  Simply continue testing as you normally would.  This change has to go through a formal approval process that will take some extra time.

#11699 Building Resiliency in our Students and Staff

Over 200 educators attended our Adverse Childhood Trauma (ACEs) workshops with Jen Best and Anne McNelis last year. Jen and Anne are back.  They will be moving us forward and teaching us how to build resiliency in children AND adults (reducing professional burnout!)

During the morning session, Jen will address building resiliency in our students:
Resilience is defined as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress.  When children are resilient, they are better able to make sense of difficult situations, build healthier relationships, regulate emotions more effectively, and experience control over their lives.  Even in the face of adverse childhood experiences, individuals can learn the skills to become more resilient. Adults in a child’s life can develop environments that correlate to resilience, and engage children in experiences and activities that build resilience.  This workshop will focus on what research tells us about how resilience develops, the role of protective factors in resilient individuals, and strategic ways to support children as they learn to become more resilient.

During the afternoon session Anne will concentrate on developing resiliency in adults and their specific needs:
This portion of the workshop will cover the concepts of professional burnout vs. vicarious trauma, recognizing the signs and manifestations, how to prevent it/reduce/address it; and the importance of self-care on an individual level and how to build in self-care and resiliency within the school culture.
