GED Preparation and Testing Information

GED Preparation Information

Beginning in January 2014, a newly overhauled GED is being used in Colorado. Colorado uses GED to issue High School Equivalency Diplomas, and with the 2014 GED aligned to more rigorous standards, having this diploma will reflect test taker's readiness for postsecondary education and the workforce. The Colorado GED Testing Program provides oversight and resources to GED Testing Centers in the state of Colorado, as well as information and resources for test takers.

 What's New?

  • The 2014 GED will be taken exclusively on the computer.
  • The test will continue to be taken in-person at approved testing centers, not online.
  • The 2014 GED is aligned with new state standards, so those that pass demonstrate they meet rigorous standards of high school completion and college and career readiness.
  • Test takers will get their scores reported back the same day they test, within 3 hours of completion.
  • Scores will provide detailed personalized feedback on specific skills that can be improved for a higher score, and targeted study recommendations.
  • The 2014 GED will focus on critical thinking and problem solving skills, testing 4 content areas:
  • Reasoning through Language Arts
  • Mathematical Reasoning
  • Science
  • Social Studies
