GED Testing Service LLC ("GEDTS") and KFC Foundation have developed a GED® Test Program, the goal of which is to drive greater completion and efficacy for you and KFC employees. KFC Foundation has worked directly with GEDTS to offer you the opportunity to participate in this program on a voluntary basis. Through a guided GED® Testing Program, the goal is to help you to achieve better study results and achieve your GED® credential. There are four parts to the GED® test (each part is referred to as a “Content Area”):

  • Social Studies
  • Reasoning Through Language Arts
  • Science
  • Mathematical Reasoning

In order to pass the GED® test, you must pass all four Content Area tests. You will only work on one Content Area at a given time.

IN ORDER TO REMAIN IN THE KFC FOUNDATION - GED® TESTING PROGRAM, YOU MUST ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING RULES:

  • Remain an eligible and validated employee throughout your studying and testing in the GED® Testing Program.
  • Register for the on-line software GED® preparation product and register on “GED.com” during your preparation and testing cycle to gain access to the preparation materials.
  • Follow the prescribed order of the GED® test Content Areas for study, in that prescribed order take the corresponding GED Ready® and the corresponding operational GED® Content Area test.
  • Study a minimum of 6 hours each week (Monday through Sunday) using the on-line course materials available to you. Your study hours will be monitored by the GED Advisor™.*
  • Take and pass the software GED® prep study material content area assessment/quizzes.
  • Take the GED Ready®: the official practice test for the GED® test.
    • If your GED Ready® score is in the “yellow” area, you will be required to go back to step 3 above and repeat steps 4, 5, and 6, review the study materials recommended by the GED Ready™ score report and repeat the on-line studying program as necessary to achieve a “green” score on the GED Ready®.
    • If your GED Ready® score is in the “red” area of the score report, you may also be referred to nearby adult educational programs (“ABE”), if available in your area, so you can obtain specific study assistance on the Content Area. When you complete the ABE study program, you will return to step 3 above and resume the KFC Foundation - GED® Testing program
    • If your GED Ready™ score is in the “green” area of the score report, this means you are ready to take the operational GED® test for the Content Area. Your GED Advisor™ will provide you with instructions on when and how to schedule your operational GED® Content Area Test.
  • Take the operational GED® test for the current Content Area.
    • If you do not pass the operational GED® Content Area test, then you will be provided a personalized study/remediation plan and then your study cycle repeats and you continue studying the current Content Area as long as you continue to make progress.
    • If you pass the operational GED® Content Area test, then you will move on to the next prescribed Content Area on-line software GED® prep study materials and the cycle repeats for the new GED® Content Area. Access to each Content Area test is independent of the others.
  • IMPORTANT RESCHEDULING POLICY: You may reschedule or cancel your scheduled operational GED® test appointment at any time and for any reason as long as you canceled or rescheduled at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled test appointment. However, if you do not reschedule or cancel at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled test appointment and you do not show up for the operational GED® test appointment, this will be considered a “No-Show”. The No-Show will count as a single attempt and it will exhaust the total attempts you will receive and you forfeit the GED® test pass guarantee. You will not be eligible to take additional operational GED® tests until you make an additional purchase.

You are also required to comply with the requirements and obligations of the on-line software preparation materials end user license agreement and with all testing rules specified in the test-taker rules agreement governing the test day.

* IMPORTANT NOTE: If you study less than 6 hours in a week, you will receive a written email notice reminding you that you must study a minimum of 6 hours each week to keep the GED® test pass guarantee. If you fall below 6 hours of study second time, you will lose the GED® test pass guarantee, you will receive an additional 30-day access to the software’s prep for the GED® test, and you will receive one free attempt at the GED Ready® practice test and one attempt at the operational GED® test for the specific Content Area for which you are authorized. You will not be allowed to return to studying for another subject Content Area.
