    We’ve just published a new write-up on how EdReady is being used with ABE students in Nebraska to help them prepare for the GED math test. The PDF is attached here.

    I’m curious. What goal and scope(s) did you use?

    Hey Tina, apologies for taking so long to reply. According to Felicity at MCC, they primarily used a goal they call General Math: mcc_generalmath. That was enough for some students to pass the GED. Other students needed the Algebra and Geometry goal: mcc_algebrageometry. They have another one that they only used when they’re helping someone prep for credit courses (mcc_algebratrigonometry).

    The scopes were custom created with help from NROC’s Jason Gipson-Nahman, as follows:

    Transitions
    Unit 1, all minus Lessons 4 and 5
    Unit 2, all
    Unit 3, all
    Unit 5, all

    General Math, Units 1-8

    Algebra and Geometry, Units 9-14

    Advanced Algebra and Trigonometry, Units 15-19

    Does that help?
