REGISTRATION IS CLOSED - Planning for the GED 2014 Test Series -- Part 2 of 2 (SE)
- This series of two sessions is designed to help your program begin the process of preparing for GED 2014 by looking at how the GED assessment will be changing for January 2014 and examining and discussing strategies for program adaptations for preparation for new GED Exam. By the end of Session 1 a program will have a beginning list of the changes. Back at the program, the staff will discuss, add to and refine this list of needed changes. In Session 2, a credible working draft of a GED Preparation Change Plan will be produced so that programs will start FY13 with a sense of where the program is headed and how it will get there. It is recommended that teams of stakeholders (administrators, teachers, advisors and possibly students) from each program attend, with a minimum of two persons from each program. This level of participation is essential for the second session, as the program team will be producing a draft work plan.

Learning Objectives for Part 2:
Participants will :
1. Create an action plan for their program (including specific actions, and a draft timeline and budget) with the steps they will take to prepare students, instructors, advisers and administrators for the anticipated changes to the GED 2014 test series and to make needed changes in the program itself, to address such issues as:
• Need for greater instructional intensity through face-to-face and/or online instruction • Need for students to have good keyboarding and other computer com fort and competence skills • How to address preparing for the considerably more difficult math test • Whether or not, and if so what kinds of, teacher professional development is needed, and • How best to prepare students who may be uncomfortable with taking a high-stakes test on a computer.
2. Share their action plans with others in the workshop and consider adding ideas learned from the sharing to their own action plans.
