KANSAS CITY, Mo. - One testing center in the Kansas City area is offering a new computerized version of the GED.
The Metropolitan Community College Business and Technology Center allows people to take the GED on the computer .
With the new system, people can schedule to take the five-part exam in sections, instead of tackling the whole exam in one eight-hour sitting.
Another advantage of the computer test is test takers get immediate results for four out of five sections of the exam. The only section that doesn’t provide immediate results is the essay section.
The computerized GED at MCC costs $28 per section, or $140 for the entire exam. By January 2014, all GED testing centers in Missouri will be using computer based GED scheduling and testing.
