GED® Testing Program

The GED® tests measure the academic skills and knowledge expected of high school graduates. Recognized throughout North America, the GED® testing program has served as a bridge to education and employment.

The tests are designed to measure the general knowledge, ideas and thinking skills that are normally acquired through high school, but gained in a different manner. Many people acquire knowledge and skills through:

  • work experience,
  • reading,
  • social interaction and communication, and
  • informal training.

The GED® tests consist of content area tests in:

  • reading,
  • writing,
  • mathematics,
  • science, and
  • social studies.

The tests also measure:

  • communication,
  • information-processing,
  • problem-solving, and
  • critical-thinking skills.

Preparing for the GED® Test

Skills acquired through work, training, reading and other life experiences may already have prepared you to write the GED® tests. However, most people need to refresh or gain additional skills before they are successful in passing all five tests.

For additional preparation you can:

  • study books from the library;
  • purchase a study guide from local bookstores or regional college or Saskatchewan Polytechnic campus; and,
  • study at home with the help of a friend or tutor.

You may wish to contact your nearest training institution or Labour Market Services Delivery Location to get more information on the GED® Testing Program.
