Metropolitan Education District’s Silicon Valley Regional Testing Center has expanded its services to include not only GED testing but also a wide variety of computerized tests required for fellow educators including the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST). Test takers have the convenience of picking the time and date of their test that best fits their schedule.
MetroED began offering six additional tests beginning January 27, and most available sessions through February are already filled, MetroED GED & CalWORKs Site Supervisor, Karen Enzensperger, said.
The testing center now offers six computerized tests, in addition, to the GED, four days a week. New tests include: the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST); California Preliminary Administrative Credential Examination (CPACE); California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET); California Teacher of English Learners (CTEL); National Evaluation Series (NES); and Reading Instruction Competence Assessment (RICA). Pricing varies according to the test and which modules are being taken.
Registration and scheduling a test date is very simple and is all completed online at ctcexams.nesinc.com.
GED test registration is also online at GED.com and unlike in the past, students now pay per test instead of all at once.
For most tests, students find out their scores instantly. Enzensperger said the testing center also plans to add IT Certification tests next month and add at least ten more testing computers to the testing center. For more information, call 408-723-6450.
