    (Updated 1/21/03) Description Preparing for the Tests Sample Test Questions Testing Schedules and Requirements ... Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
    The Tests of General Education Development (GED) are five tests that, when successfully passed, provide adults who did not finish high school with a second opportunity to earn a high school completion credential. Employers, the military, and college and technical educators and institutions recognize and accept the GED. The tests are designed to measure and represent the knowledge, skills, and understanding that current high school seniors would learn from their high school education. TOP Description
    The GED was originally developed in 1942 for returning World War II servicemen who had their high school education interrupted by the call to service. In Vermont, adults 18 and over, and students age 16 (with parental permission) may take the GED Tests if they are not enrolled in high school at the time they take the tests. In Vermont an average of between 1500 and 2000 persons, ranging in age from 16 to 60+, test each year. For more detailed information about the GED test, visit the national GED website at

    by the National Book Scholarship Fund The National Book Scholarship Fund grant represented a significant boost to Central Vermont Adult Basic Education's family literacy project. Working in collaboration with the Barre City School District, CVABE targeted parents of children in kindergarten through second grade who were identified as at-risk of low reading scores. The program coordinator encouraged family reading as a form of immunization against low reading scores and risk-taking behaviors. The National Book Scholarship Fund provided the books needed for these families to read together. Materials were used during individual home visits, in small-group family reading workshops, and in staff development activities. The National Book Scholarship Fund also provided books that were used to develop two new children's libraries at local low-income housing residences. These books helped build the relationship between the resident librarians and the family reading coordinators who worked cooperatively to offer small-group workshops on family reading.
