SOUTH BEND — Indiana's plans to replace the GED exam with a new test based on more rigorous academic standards has set off a scramble for students hoping to complete the old test by December.Indiana Department of Workforce Development spokesman Joe Frank tells the South Bend Tribune the state is switching exams because GED provider Pearson is going to an all-computer model and nearly doubling its price.

Frank says the new Test Assessing Secondary Completion, or TASC, will have a college and career focus. It will offer a paper-and-pencil option to ensure accessibility and is expected to cost less than the new GED.

Frank says students who don't pass the current GED by year's end will have to restart the process.
