Ivy Tech offers online GED exams


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — For a glimpse into the future of high school equivalency testing, look no further than Ivy Tech Community College — Columbus/Franklin.

The college's Workforce Certification Center began offering computerized general education development exams in October and now hopes more people will sign up, said Terri Bartnett, the center manager.

She said the tests began at Ivy Tech's Poling Hall but were moved this month to the Columbus Learning Center, 4555 Central Ave.

That puts the college far ahead of a state requirement that all test-providing institutions, including McDowell Education Center at 2700 McKinley Ave., tear away from pencil and paper and give the tests exclusively on computers starting Jan. 2.
