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.

#11632 Desmos Updates: A Great Tool for Grades 9-12 Math Teaching and Learning

Desmos has become a leader as a free online graphics calculator.  It is available, and runs easily, on iPads, phones, tablets, and computers.  The Desmos company has explicit goals for helping students learn and love math. (It is worth noting that the College Board has recently decided to make Desmos available on the SAT.) This workshop is designed to benefit teachers new to Desmos and those who have some experience.  We will look at the two aspects of Desmos: (1) The graphing calculator which can be used by teachers to dynamically demonstrate mathematical concepts and by students to explore and learn concepts, and (2) Desmos Classroom Activities. Desmos Classroom Activities are an ever-growing set of online activities which teachers can use to engage their students.  We will also look at the Desmos Activity Builder, so teachers can modify and build their own interactive Desmos Classroom Activities. We will connect the classroom activities to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and the Mathematical Practices.

Teachers are encouraged to attend both the morning and afternoon sessions.  The format in the morning and afternoon will be similar but the actual math content will be different.  There is a 30 minute break in between. Lunch is on your own.  Bring a laptop device as we will be accessing online teaching resources.
