Since 1942, more than 12 million adults have earned GED certificates. Still, today there are more than 39 million adults without a high school diploma, and the demand for a high school education is higher than ever. Because of this, more and more people want to get a GED certificate. And most people are looking for a fast, easy way to get a GED certificate. Meanwhile, the Internet has given us many new options…online shopping, online gaming, and online classes for GED test preparation. More and more people are asking: What about taking the GED test online?
You cannot take your GED test online or at home. A lot of learners ask, why not? It's just a test, isn't it? The GED test is not really just a test. Passing the GED test is a significant accomplishment; GED certificate holders have higher skills than 40% of high school graduates. The more than 95% of colleges and employers that accept and value the GED certificate need to know that a GED certificate is a substantial, meaningful achievement. The GED test is designed to be a valuable measure of basic skills in language arts, social studies, science, and math as well as important skills in critical thinking, evaluation, and problem solving. To ensure the validity of these measurements, the GED test is administered in a controlled environment by a GED Test Proctor™, where the identity of all test-takers can be checked. The careful design and administration of the GED test gives it value to employers, colleges, and ultimately test-takers.
Unfortunately, unscrupulous businesses are always ready to take advantage of people who are looking for an easy way to make up for not graduating high school. Websites may offer an "online GED certificate," supposed online GED tests, an online "high school" test, or a "life experience" high school or GED online certificate. Despite claiming to be accredited, these websites are fake schools that provide worthless diplomas, ones that won't be accepted by colleges or employers. If you're not sure, check with colleges to see if the diploma is worthless or worthwhile. Fake online GED certificate websites cheat customers out of $200 to $1,000 for a "diploma" that will be rejected by savvy employers and colleges.
A real GED certificate can increase adults' overall income by $350,000 over the course of their lifetimes, and if GED test graduates go on to trade school, community college, or a university, their total lifetime income could be almost a million dollars higher. The value of the GED certificate comes not just from a piece of paper but from having the measurable GED test skills that are essential in today's job market.
