The National External Diploma Program (NEDP) external site

The National External Diploma Program (NEDP) is a program of the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment Systems (CASAS) which provides assessment and evaluation systems for adult education and workforce programs in the public and private sector. NEDP is a unique way for adult students to earn a high school diploma. Students who have acquired many of their high school level abilities through work, family, and community experiences can complete a high school diploma, opening the way to postsecondary education and improved employment options. In July 2010, the National External Diploma Program (NEDP) selected the O*NET Career Exploration Tools as the only official occupational tools for use by its students. Students using the career tools receive results correlated to the up-to-date, detailed, and comprehensive occupational information provided by the O*NET database.
