WHAT ARE THE GED® TESTS?
The Tests of General Education Development (GED) are designed to measure major academic skills and knowledge in core content areas that are learned during four years of high school. When an adult passes the 7.5 hour GED Tests battery, the resulting GED credential certifies that he or she has attained subject matter knowledge and skills associated with high school completion. The GED Tests battery includes the following subject area tests:
- Language Arts, Writing, Part I (50 questions, 75 minutes)
- Language Arts, Writing, Part II (essay, 45 minutes)
- Social Studies (50 questions, 70 minutes)
- Science (50 questions, 80 minutes)
- Language Arts, Reading (40 questions, 65 minutes)
- Mathematics, Part I (25 questions with optional use of calculator, 45 minutes)
- Mathematics, Part II (25 questions without a calculator, 45 minutes)
Except for Part II of the Language Arts, Writing Test, which requires an essay, and the Mathematics Test, which requires the gridding of some answers, questions are provided in multiple-choice format.
