(UNDATED) - Indiana is looking to replace the General Education Development exam with another high school equivalency test ahead of planned changes in price and format.

GED provider Pearson is raising the exam's price from $70 to $120 and switching to an online test in 2014. The moves have raised concerns about whether students can afford the exam and whether those without computer experience will be able to complete it.

Indiana Department of Workforce Development spokesman Joe Frank tells the Daily Journal that the state wants the exam students take to be both affordable and understandable, and that means using paper and pencil.

Frank says the goal is to have an alternate exam selected in July so that career centers can get details and preparation materials in August.
