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 GED® 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.
