W.Va. replaces GED with CTB/McGraw Hill exam

   CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia has replaced the GED with a high school diploma equivalency exam provided by CTB/McGraw Hill.
   People seeking a high school equivalency diploma will begin taking CTB/McGraw Hill's Test Assessing Secondary Completion exam, or TASC, in January.
   The Charleston Gazette reports that the state will continue to offer the test for free.
   State officials began looking for another provider after a new electronic GED was announced. The electronic GED exam will cost $120, compared to the existing test's $50 fee.
   The base price of CTB/McGraw Hill's exam is $52. The company says it will offer both paper-and-pencil and online versions of the exam.
