General Educational Development (or GED) tests are a group of five
subject tests which, when passed, certify that the taker has American
or Canadian high school-level academic skills. The GED is also referred
to as a General Education Diploma, General Equivalency Diploma, Graduate
Equivalency Degree.

The American Council on Education is the sole developer for the GED test.
The test is taken in person. Jurisdictions award a "Certificate of General
Educational Development" or similarly titled credential to persons who meet
the passing score requirements.

Only individuals who have not earned a high school diploma may take the GED
tests. The tests were originally created to help veterans after World War II
return to civilian life. Common reasons for GED recipients not having received
a high school diploma include adult immigration to the United States or Canada,
homeschooling, leaving high school early, the inability to pass required courses
or mandatory achievement tests, the need to work, personal problems, and wanting
to get into college early.

In addition to English, the GED tests are available in Spanish, French, large
print, audiocassette, and braille. Tests and test preparation are routinely
offered in prisons and on military bases in addition to more traditional
settings. Individuals living outside the United States, Canada, or U.S.
territories may be eligible to take the GED Tests through private testing
companies.




How the test works


The GED comprises five tests:

1. "Language Arts: Writing",

2. "Social Studies",

3. "Science",

4. "Language Arts: Reading",

5. "Mathematics".



To ensure fairness, all Official GED Testing Centers must adhere to
the uniform testing standards specified by the American Council on
Education, including adherence to the provisions of the Americans
with Disabilities Act of 1990 or the Canadian Charter of Rights and
Freedoms.

Local policies determine whether students must take all five tests
in one day. Some locations divide the tests among two or more days,
and testing days are not always consecutive.




Cost



The cost of the GED for test-takers varies depending on the state. The
most reliable and up-to-date information regarding any given area's
current testing costs and policies may be found by contacting the local
testing center.

In some areas, there is no charge to students who wish to receive the GED.
In Arkansas, for example, there is no charge to students who pass a practice
test. In Connecticut, veterans and students under age 21 take the test for
free; depending on their local GED board, students can also take preparation
courses for free and/or receive a free copy of the official preparation
textbook.

In other states, the test-taker must pay for the cost of the test.

FOR
SINGLE
MOTHERS




Many young single mothers end up leaving high school without
graduating or getting their diploma. Fortunately for these
women, General Educational Development (GED) programs exist
to help them earn their high school diploma outside of school.

Under a GED program, a person who has not graduated high school
has to pass a series of five tests with a score equivalent to
the 60th percentile of all U.S. high school students to receive
a diploma.
