Kansas City students preview test replacing GED

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City Public School district gave its adult education students a sneak peek at the test replacing the GED in Missouri.

The High School Equivalent Test has a different scoring system, tests students on their computer literacy and is said to be much tougher. The biggest change is that papers and pencils will not be used in administering the test.

"This test is on the computer. You get results right then, as fast as the writing portion of the test that takes about a two-week timeframe for you to get your results back," Admissions Officer Kira Morrison said.

The new test is also pricier, costing students about $140.
