New York City, NY (PRWEB) December 21, 2013

GED exams have undergone core changes, one of the most prominent being the need for computer literacy, eReflect revealed today. The new GED exams are now capable of helping prepare people to get jobs that require basic computer skills or those who wish to continue with education at a technical school or college.

One of the recent changes is that the GED exams are no longer divided into five sections. From 2014 onwards, students will be assessed in math, literacy (reading and writing), social studies and sciences. In an effort to make the GED more than just a high school graduation credential, the GED exams from January 2014 forward will be exclusively computer-based, which means that, although taught only indirectly, basic typing and computer skills will also be part of the GED process. This will ensure the exam-taker will obtain those core computer skills necessary for landing a better-paying job or be accepted at a better college.

Since the GED examination is making a full transition from paper to computer-based only, those students wishing to do well on the exam should consider improving their keyboarding and computer skills, eReflect advised. A substantial increase in typing speed and accuracy will ensure the exam-taker won’t have to worry about typos and a slowed-down pace that would only increase their frustration during the exam. Typing efficiency gives confidence to the exam-takers, enabling them to correctly and productively type their answers, be it multiple-choice questions or essay ones.

An eReflect spokesperson offered an appraisal of the GED changes to be implemented January 2014, saying that these changes reflect a forward-looking approach for advancing education and career goals. It will allow millions of students and adults to have a second shot at getting more rewarding jobs or continuing their education to ensure better career possibilities later on.

The changes, although drastic, were long overdue, said the spokesperson. However, this shouldn’t worry future GED exam-takers. All changes have been strategically implemented and the GED testing service offers guidelines and support to ensure good results.
