Comparative Performance of Florida Seniors on the GED Test Battery
Two separate studies are reported. The first comparedFlorida students’ performance on the GEO to national GEO norms. Results indicated that Florida students compare quite favorably. Mean scale scores were higher for Florida students than the national norm group on all tests and noticeably higher on the science and math tests. The second study compared Florida students’ performance on the GEO with their performance on the Florida SSAT-II. Results indicated that students who cannot pass the SSAT-II are unlikely to succeed on the GEO.
