This evaluation report presents the structure, format, processes, results, conclusions, and recommendations of Iowa's GED Writing Skills Pilot Project. During 1984-1985 Iowa conducted a pilot project in cooperation with the General Educational Development Testing Service (G EDTS). The project was designed to determine whether a proposed essay addition to the new GED test batteries, scheduled for release in 1988, could be successfully administered and scored in local test centers with an acceptable degree of test reliability and validity. A project of this nature would assist many other states and territories with local scoring procedures and small volume testing centers in implementing the proposed essay component. Another major aspect of the project included the investigation of the logistics, costs, and effort involved in coordinating the instructional and testing components.
