According to the GED Testing Service, the passing score is set "based on the performance of a national sample of high school graduates from the class of 2013." This is the way the GED test has always been "normed" (ie, had its passing score determined). An adult GED test taker is in competition with those graduating high school students who took test. The test makers, on their own, do not decide what a passing score will be. So all this talk about how much harder the new GED will be is just plain false. To hear community college deans in charge of the GED at their school talk about how it's "raising the bar" shows how misinformed people are about this.
