FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The cost of taking the GED test in Kentucky is being reduced for a limited time.

Effective immediately, eligible Kentucky adults can take each module of the GED test at the reduced cost of $10.

The state Council on Postsecondary Education says the offer is being made possible in Kentucky through $20 limited-time vouchers using federal Workforce Investment Act funds. Through the offer, the full GED test is available at the reduced cost of $40, a savings of $80.

Officials say the vouchers will be distributed while supplies last.

The current version of the GED test was launched in January by the GED Testing Service.

The computer-based test consists of four modules -- reasoning through language arts, mathematical reasoning, science and social studies.
