What is the “2014 GED® Test”?

  • The GED® test has been updated to make sure it measures what graduating high school seniors know and what colleges and employers will expect of you.
  • Four content areas: Reasoning Through Language Arts (150 minutes including a 10-minute break), Mathematical Reasoning (90 minutes), Science (90 minutes), and Social Studies (90 minutes)
  • The GED is offered on computer (not online) with paper testing available for accommodations only
  • It is offered in English and in Spanish
  • 3 opportunities to test per year, per content area
  • Seven different item types: Extended response, Drag-and-drop, Drop-down, Fill-in-the-blank, Hot spot, Multiple choice, and Short answer
  • On the 2014 GED® test you need to earn at least 150 points in each subject to pass.
  • Enhanced Score Report - The enhanced score report from GED Testing Service provides targeted feedback for each test-taker so they know their strengths, what skills to develop, and how to score higher on their re-test. Same-day scoring is provided on all four parts including the new score report for reporting and remediation.
  • Students passing the GED® test will automatically receive an electronic, secure, diploma and Smart Transcript. This is delivered immediately to their email address after their test is scored. Test-takers can view, print, and request a professionally-printed diploma free of charge.
