|The Regulations were last amended in 1980. Since that time, the American Council on Education, which has oversight of GED testing, has established new requirements for the program that are not reflected in the current regulations. Additionally, the Code of Virginia has been amended to include new GED programs for 16-year olds. The GED Certificate is a well respected and nationally recognized credential. To ensure the integrity of the GED credential and align it with the Code of Virginia, action should be taken to create new regulations that reflect current program practice.
