1. Readiness Assessment (RA): $150.00:
This assessment is administered at one of our GTA partner facilities. The RA is a 2.5-hour assessment that analyzes the skill-sets essential to success with the GED tests: Language Arts Reading and Writing, Social Studies, Science and Math. GED Achievement® provides each client with a written analysis of their results. The analysis communicates areas of strengths, and areas which require review. The RA analysis also provides our GED Achievement® coaches with the information required to effectively individualize coaching, and facilitates success.
The Readiness Assessment is often used as a “stand alone” instrument because it provides individuals, coaches, and agency caseworkers (when applicable) valuable information on ten academic skill sets in the areas of language arts, practical numeracy/math and essay writing.
2. GED Achievement® Preparation Program: $660.00
The GED Achievement® Preparation Program began in 1996 and has been recognized since 1999 across Canada and the USA as a condensed and highly effective program that allows capable adults to succeed on the GED tests at levels that match their real abilities and experience.
Our program includes 6 coaching sessions, a textbook, a GED-approved calculator, GED-A® proprietary material, plus 2 additional sessions which include the administration of the GED Official Practice Tests (OPT), and the OPT results review.
