GED Tests and Score Records - Locating
1. How far back are GED scores in NRSpro.com?
- How far back records go in NRSpro.com depends on when the testing centers started entering records into NRSpro.com. The state transitioned to NRSpro.com in 2002. There are some records back to the 1960s for various testing centers while others only have records for the 1970s and 1980s.
2. If a record cannot be found in NRSpro.com, what should we do?
- If a record cannot be found, then a research effort either at the testing center or at the state level needs to be pursued.
Scoring GED Tests
1. Old GED score reports are showing that the test-taker passed the GED Tests, but NRSpro.com shows their status as “pending." What needs to be done to correct this?
- In the transition from GED Premier to GEDScoring.com, (the state’s original GED scoring system) there were relative small numbers of records that did not yet have essay scores posted. These are typically dated September – December 2001. These need to be researched on a case-by-case basis as inquiries occur. Records maintained outside of the current database must be researched.
2. I am having problems with entering information into NRSPro.com. How can I get help?
- When you are in NRSPro.com, click on the “Help” link where you can seek assistance directly from NRSPro.com.
Unusual Testing Situations
1. A person achieved their high school diploma 30 years ago. Now, they need proof of graduation, but their high school cannot find their school records. Can this person take the GED Tests?
- Yes. In the circumstance of permanent school records having been lost or destroyed, the person is eligible to take the GED Tests. In this situation permission from the State GED Testing Administrator would need to be obtained.
1. A test-taker presents with a drivers license that is broken and taped together. Is this a valid form of ID?
- Yes. If the two halves match, accept it, but direct them to the Driver License Division to apply for a new driver’s license.
Note: outdated IDs or IDs suspected of being forged are not to be accepted.
2. A test-taker’s driver’s license has a hole in it. Should I accept it as a valid form of ID?
- It depends. The Driver License Division routinely hole punches licenses of persons, who had previous DUIs or had lost their license due to traffic infractions. If the license is readable and the license has not expired then accept it.
3. If a test-taker tries to register with a Social Security Card and a transcript from their high school as proof of ID, can I accept it as ID?
1. A test-taker, who took the GED in the 90’s and did not pass, tried to register online received a message that a record already exists in NRSPro.com. Why is this happening must he complete a paper registration form?
- Yes, he must complete a paper registration form as on-line registration is for first-time-test-takers only.
