Some Frequently Asked Questions about the GED…

What is the GED?

The General Educational Development test, or GED, is a high-school equivalency assessment. It measures whether test-takers have a high-school level understanding of four basic subjects: math, science, social studies, and language arts. In short, it tests everything taught in high school, so that if you didn’t earn a diploma, you can still prove you have the equivalent knowledge.

There are several types of selected-response questions throughout the test, including multiple choice, drag and drop, fill in the blank, and hotspot. Multiple-choice questions ask a question and offer four to five responses for selection, while hot-spot questions offer ranges of space on the screen for selection. Drag-and-drop questions list answer choices to be moved, “dragged,” to various places on the screen; fill-in-the-blank questions off er an area for you to type in your answer choice. In the science section you will encounter two short-answer questions that will require you to briefly respond to a question. The social studies and language arts sections contain extended-response questions, where you will be given historical and literary texts and must analyze and glean evidence from those texts to support your answer to the question.

What is on the GED exam?

  • Math: basic operations, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, and probability

  • Science: physical sciences (chemistry and physics), life science (biology), Earth sciences (geology and meteorology), and space science (astronomy)

  • Social Studies: U.S. and world history, economics, government, geography, and behavioral sciences

  • Language Arts: interpreting informational and fictional passages

How is the GED scored?

Various questions on the GED are worth different points. For example, a multiple-choice question with one correct answer may be worth one point, but a drag-and-drop question with two correct answers may be worth two points. There is no penalty for wrong answers (so you should never leave a question blank). Other types of questions are worth a range of points depending on the difficulty of the question.

Raw scores for each section are scaled from 100 – 200, with a score of 145 needed to pass. There are three score levels: passing, college ready, and college ready + credit level. A score of 165 – 174, college ready, indicates that you likely have the skills necessary to begin college-level courses, while a score of 175 – 200 may qualify you for up to ten college credits depending on your institution. The extended-response questions in the language arts, social studies, and science sections are scored from 1 – 4, and you must earn a 2 to pass. Some states may not have updated their score practices, so be sure to check the guidelines of your individual state. Once you’ve passed a section, you do not need to take that section again (even if you need to retake other sections).

How is the GED Administered?

The GED is only offered as a computer-based test. You do not need to take the test all at once—when registering, you can choose which sections you wish to take on a given day. An onscreen calculator is available during the test, but you are also welcome to bring a TI-30XS Multiview scientific calculator. The GED is administered at private testing facilities. Each location may administer the exam slightly differently, so ask at your particular location about the details of test administration. You’ll want to ask when the test begins, when breaks are offered, and what materials you’re allowed to bring with you to the test.
