General Education Development (GED) Preparation Program
The testing criteria and guidelines for General Education Development (GED) preparation program is as follows:
Students should obtain the following minimum scale score on the TABE (Reading = 566, Language = 559, and Math = 565) in order to gain the most benefit from the GED preparatory courses. If a student scores these minimum scale scores or higher in one competency (reading, language, or math) and less than these minimums in either or both of the others, the student can be enrolled in both GED and ABE programs of study as indicated by the individual test scores.
EDU 075 is reserved for students who score the minimum scale score or higher on TABE Reading, Language and Math. Students who do not score above these minimums in all subtests are placed in the appropriate level for each individual course (please see chart below).
A student who has taken the GED test and was below the minimum required scale score on at least one, but not all of the subtests, is enrolled in one or more of the courses in the chart below.
