After seven decades, the state is preparing to replace the GED test.  

For generations, students and adults have tackled the test which is an alternative credential to a high school diploma.

The GED exam stands for General Educational Development. But starting in January, Louisiana students will take a different exam.

A division of Educational Testing Service - called HiSET - will start administering its own high school equivalency test on English, math, science and other areas.

The one key reason for the change -- GED officials will soon be offering computer-only tests.
