GED Test Information:

  • GED tests are offered exclusively on the computer and must be taken in-person at approved testing centers only.
  • GED tests are 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.
  • Scores will provide detailed personalized feedback on specific skills that can be improved for a higher score, and targeted study recommendations.
  • GED preparation focuses on critical thinking and problem-solving skills, testing four content areas: Reasoning through Language Arts (Reading and Writing), Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social Studies.

For more information about the GED test, including test center locations, visit the GED Testing Service website. You will be asked to register (i.e., provide some information about yourself).
