New York State is mulling an alternative to the GED exam, the one you take you get a high school equivalancy diploma. Since World War 2, all adults who have sought that diploma have taken the GED. Next year, students may have a choice of tests as states explore developing rival exams. It's in responce to the GED panel's plans to re-write and computerize (and double the price) of the GED in 2014. New York State, citing a litany of issues with the GED Testing Service's planned revamp, already has solicited bids for an alternative test that would maintain the paper and pencil format, and the cheaper 60 dollar pricetag.
