Students of all levels are welcome to join the class. However, the material is geared toward Level 2 students who have already been participating in GED class and Level 3 students.
During the pandemic, making classes available online was accomplished very readily using Zoom as the streaming platform; however, it was not done without some glitches. Through a little negotiation, the program was given permission to use Zoom for instruction rather than the KCTCS-mandated Teams since ABE students did not possess a KCTCS email. Further, as an accommodation through the pandemic, Zoom has allowed extension of session duration for educational entities free of charge.
LIVE AND LEARN, MESSY MOMENTS
Face-to-Face Messy Moments
The messiest or most difficult aspect was accepting new students on Day 1. Although we requested that students register, we let anyone who arrived take the class. If they were students who had stopped out and were returning, we had to pull records and update forms and, possibly, enrollment tests. Whereas, new students required paperwork, testing, and setting up email and GED® accounts. Day 1 was pretty chaotic and required a lot of staff support. Each afternoon of Get ‘Er Done week students took a Ready Test, so we also had to determine which Ready Tests students needed to take.
