About the GED

What is GED

GED is a joint venture between Pearson and the American Council on Education (ACE). The GED tests are designed to measure understanding in subject areas comparable to a high school program. You are required to write an essay for Part II of the Language Arts Writing test. All other tests consist of multiple choice questions. In Mathematics there are 10% alternate format questions (not multiple choice). We’re facing a national crisis. Millions of adults, without high school diplomas, lack the skills and knowledge to succeed in the 21st Century marketplace. This impacts every community in America. But worse, it’s devastating to the adults who want to fulfill the American dream of a better life for themselves and their families. We need to give these adults and their families a fighting chance. We need to give them the tools, resources and knowledge--through a high school equivalency program--to prepare them for college or a good job with good wages. And in doing so, employers and colleges deserve a credential that signifies something meaningful. That’s why GED has built not just a new test but a new comprehensive program that ensures that their credential signifies that the recipient has the skills and knowledge necessary to take the next critical steps in their lives. We owe these adults nothing less as their futures depend on it.
