Overview

General Educational Development (or GED) tests are a group of five subject tests which, when passed, certify that the taker has American or Canadian high school-level academic skills. The GED is also referred to as a General Education Diploma, General Equivalency Diploma, or Graduate Equivalency Degree.

Once you get the GED diploma, you can pursue higher education and if you decide to do so, you will get the same government financial aid as any other high school graduate does. In order to sit for the GED Test candidates usually take up GED class so that they can prepare well of the GED Test.

 How the test works

The five tests that comprise the GED test battery are “Language Arts: Writing”, “Social Studies”, “Science”, “Language Arts: Reading,” and “Mathematics”.  To ensure fairness, all Official GED Testing Centers must adhere to the uniform testing standards specified by the American Council on Education, including adherence to the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 or the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Local policies determine whether students must take all five tests in one day. Some locations divide the tests among two or more days, and testing days are not always consecutive.

Language Arts: Writing

Part I

The “Language Arts: Writing” test portion is divided into two parts, of which the first covers sentence structure, organization, usage, and mechanics. Test-takers read text from business, informational, and instructional publications and then correct, revise, or improve the text according to Edited American English standards (or equivalent standards in Spanish and French versions). Test-takers have 75 minutes to complete the 50 items in Part I.

Part II

This part of the “Language Arts: Writing” test requires the student to write an essay on an assigned topic in 45 minutes. Persons who finish Part I early may apply the remaining time to their essays. A passing essay must have well focused main points, clear organization, and specific development of ideas, and demonstrate the writer’s control of sentence structure, punctuation, grammar, word choice, and spelling. There is no minimum word count. The essay should be long enough to develop the topic adequately. Assigned topics are always an opinion or perspective that does not require special knowledge, such as the influence of violent music on teenagers or the advantages and disadvantages of living without children. Essays need not be true or based in reality as long as they are developed around the assigned topic.

 Language Arts: Reading

This 65-minute, 40-question test examines a test-taker’s ability to read and understand texts similar to those encountered in high-school English classrooms. The test has five fiction and two nonfiction passages, each about 300–400 words long. The fiction passages include portions of a play, a poem, and three pieces of prose. The nonfiction passages may come from letters, biographies, newspaper and magazine articles, or such “practical” texts as manuals and forms. Each passage is followed by questions that assess reading comprehension, as well as the test-taker’s ability to analyze the text, apply the information given to other situations, and synthesize new ideas from those provided. Questions do not require test-takers to be familiar with the larger piece of literature from which the excerpt is taken, the author’s other works, literary history, or discipline-specific terms and conventions.

Social studies

This test covers American history, world history, civics and government, economics, and geography; 70 minutes are for the 50 questions.

In the social studies test, test-takers read short passages and answer multiple-choice questions. Some passages come from such documents as the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Supreme Court decisions. Many questions use graphs, charts, and other images, such as editorial cartoons, along with or instead of written passages. Questions involving civics and government and economics rely heavily on practical documents, such as tax forms, voter-registration forms, and workplace and personal budgets. Topics such as global and environmental law also are covered.

Science

This 80-minute test of 50 multiple-choice questions covers life science, earth and space science, and physical science. It measures the candidate’s skill in understanding, interpreting, and applying science concepts to visual and written text from academic and workplace contexts. The test focuses on what a scientifically literate person must know, understand, and be able to do. Questions address the National Science Education Content Standards and focus on environmental and health topics (recycling, heredity, and pollution, for example) and science’s relevance to everyday life. Students should expect to see tables, graphs, charts, and diagrams, as well as complete sentences.

Most questions on the “Science” test involve a graphic, such as a map, graph, chart, or diagram. Subjects covered include photosynthesis, weather and climate, geology, magnetism, energy, and cell division.

 

Mathematics

This 90-minute, 50-question test has two equally weighted parts, the first of which allows candidates to use calculators, while the second forbids their use. Test-takers must use the calculators issued at the testing center, no other. Forty of the 50 are multiple-choice; the other 10 use an alternate format, requiring the test-taker to record answers on either a numerical or coordinate-plane grid. Both portions of the test have questions of both types. The test booklet offers a page of common formulas as well as directions for completing the alternate-format items and using the calculator.

The test focuses on four main mathematical disciplines:

  • Number operations and number sense
  • Measurement and geometry
  • Data analysis, probability, and statistics
  • Algebra, functions, and patterns

Who can attend the course

GED Test is a test basically built up for persons who don’t complete high school education and later find that their chances to advance themselves have been restricted due to the lack of a diploma. The GED diploma that is issued to the candidate, who successfully clears the GED Test, is considered to be of the same value as that of a high school diploma, by all the major colleges and universities in the country. GED is basically an alternative to the higher school diploma.
