Kansans Can Take Free GED Practice Tests

From now through Friday, October 3rd, Kansans who visit a local adult education center can take GED practice tests for free through the See For Free program.

The practice test will help learners see if they are ready for the real GED test, and it gives them a free personalized study plan based on their results.

Today, there are approximately 230,000 Kansans who are without a high school credential.

GED Testing Service research data show that (nationally) the practice test is more than 95% predictive of how someone will score on the GED test; in Kansas, 97% of those who score in the "Likely to Pass" category on the practice test go on to pass the GED.

Kansans can find a local adult education center to take the test by visiting KansasGED.org or calling 1-877-38-YOUR-GED.
