BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakotans trying to get the equivalent of a high school diploma have a few weeks before the testing changes to a computer-based model.

The Bismarck Tribune reports the last day students can take current General Educational Development, or GED, tests is Dec. 13.

If they don't pass all five tests in science, social studies, math, English and writing, they'll need to start the testing process over again after Jan. 2.

The new tests will only include four subject areas, with English and writing combined into one test.

The state says the change aligns with the common core education standards adopted by North Dakota and most other states.
