CASAS, in cooperation with the GED Testing Service®, is conducting a study to provide guidance to adult education programs and instructional staff regarding student readiness to take the 2014 GED® test. The study examines the relationship of CASAS reading and math scores to the GED Ready® practice test results in Reasoning through Language Arts (RLA) and Mathematical Reasoning.
To date, more than 1,000 students have participated in the study from three principal states — California, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. CASAS and the GED Testing Service® continue to recruit participants to increase the sample size of the study. This research brief presents preliminary results that show a positive relationship between CASAS reading scores and the GED® Reasoning Through Language Arts Ready Test scores as well as between CASAS math scores and GED® Mathematical Reasoning Ready Test scores.
