Morrison Adult Education & GED Testing Center


Dear GED Examinee,

Effective January 1, 2014, the next-generation GED® assessment was released, which means that a new test will be administered and previous test scores for the millions who have started and not passed the GED® Test expired on December 31, 2013, and the entire test (all subjects) will have to be taken over.  Also, the new test will be on computer and the cost will increase.


At Morrison’s (JPS) Adult Education and GED Testing center, we care about your future and encourage you to take the steps necessary to obtain your GED® credential, as soon as possible.  The following opportunities are available at our center:

·         FREE Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes to help you prepare for the tests

·         Retest in subject area(s) not passed

·         Retest to gain additional points needed to pass

·         Assistance with the testing cost (for students enrolled in JPS’ Adult Education Classes) 

Study materials and sample questions are provided by GED Testing Service at
