This research report provides results from a longitudinal study of GED test-takers from a 2003 cohort of approximately one-half million candidates. Data were obtained from the GEDTS International Database (IDB) and the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC), a nonprofit organization. About one third of GED test passers enrolled in 2-year colleges. These enrolles tended to have higher GED test scores than non-enrollees, although the effect size was small.
