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.

#11732 Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) Interface

If you work with children, learning about ACEs will change the way you deal with those difficult behaviors some children exhibit. The information in this workshop is a prerequisite to understanding the strategies presented at the February 11th, 2019, “Using Restorative Practices for Positive Classroom Management at the Elementary Level” workshop.

The ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) study confirms with scientific evidence that adversity during development increases the risk of physical, mental and behavioral problems later in life. The ACE Study and other research using the Study’s framework have taught us that ACEs are the leading cause of health and social problems in our nation – the most powerful determinant of the public’s health. Toxic stress during childhood can impact brain development and brain interaction with body systems and can result in negative behaviors. You see these behaviors and maladaptive coping skills every day in classrooms, hallways, and on the sidewalk.  But childhood is a window of opportunity for building resilience – after all, the developing brain is sensitive to all kinds of experience. Learn about these patterns of brain development, the ACE study, our opportunities for ACE prevention, and how protective systems promote resilience in children, families and our community for more productive learning and safe, nurturing environments.

This training will include a viewing and discussion of the documentary “Paper Tigers”. “Paper
Tigers” follows a year in the life of an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, becoming a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families.Training provided by Anne McNelis, LCSW of Transitions Mental Health Services.
Training supported and endorsed by the Eastern Iowa – Western Illinois Trauma Informed Care Consortium.

This training naturally pairs well with “ACES Comes to School: Strategies to Reduce Challenging Symptoms in the School” as a follow up.
