How long does it take to get GED results back after testing?

A:

According to the GED Testing Service, as of 2014, test results are available within three hours of taking the computer-based GED. This information is presented for all content areas: Reasoning Through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies.

There are two levels of GED scores. A Passing Score indicates at least a high school equivalency. A Passing Score With Honors shows college or career readiness. In addition to the test score, results display the test-takers' strengths and provide feedback on what areas need developing. If a re-test is needed, the testing service offers specific recommendations on how to prepare in order to achieve a higher score.

    How do you calculate stanine scores?

    A:

    The stanine method for scaling test results uses a nine-point scale with a standard deviation of two and a mean of five, and a simple algorithm involving ranking and splitting the scores helps teachers categorize their students' results in different achievement levels. In general, stanines permit teachers to obtain a sense of their own students' achievement in comparison with other groups around the region or nation, and stanines yield a meaningful average, while percentiles do not.
