About the 2014 GED® Test

What is the test format?
The test is on computer.

Will the content change drastically from the current 2002 Series GED® Test?
The content of the 2014 GED® test does differ from that tested on the 2002 Series GED® Test. Refer to the resource on our website called “2002 to 2014: A Content Comparison.”

What is the breakdown of the four tests by time and content?
The GED® test will be about seven and a half hours long with the timing for each subject area as follows:

The Reasoning Through Language Arts test is 150 minutes long and testing is broken down into three sections:

  • Section 1 (35 minutes*) tests all content
  • Section 2 (45 minutes) is the Extended Response portion of the test
  • Student break (10 minutes)
  • Section 3 (60 minutes*) tests all content

*The time allotted for sections 1 and 3 may vary slightly, but the total test time will always be 150 minutes.

The Mathematical Reasoning test is 115 minutes long and is one single section.

  • Part 1 – (first 5 test questions) calculator not allowed
  • Part 2 – (remaining 41 test questions) calculator allowed

Students must submit their answers before moving on to the rest of the test. These parts are not timed separately.

The Social Studies test is 90 minutes long and testing is broken down into two sections:

  • Section 1 (65 minutes) tests all content
  • Section 2 (25 minutes) is the Extended Response portion of the test

The Science test is 90 minutes long and is one single section. There are two Short Answer questions included on the test, but they are not timed separately. Students are expected to manage their time and spend about 10 minutes on each of the Short Answer questions.

About the 2014 GED® Program

What is the 2014 GED® program?
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.

That’s why GED Testing Service has built not just a new test, but a new comprehensive program. The 2014 GED® program ensures that an adult’s high school equivalency credential signifies he or she has the skills and knowledge necessary to take the next critical steps in their life.

How is the written response scored on GED Ready™ - Reasoning Through Language Arts? Is it scored electronically?
The written response is not able to be scored on GED Ready™ for the Reasoning Through Language Arts or Social Studies content areas. Instead, students will receive information in their online score report about what a typical written response should look like. Students will also have a copy of the item prompt and their written response so they can bring it into an adult education center for scoring by a trained educator.

Is there documentation on how to process the exceptions queue?
Training materials are available for GED Manager™ which is where approvers will process the exceptions queue in 2014. Refer to our web page on Training for the 2014 GED® Program for more information.

Who can/cannot make demographic changes?
Students are allowed to modify their profile information such as their email address, password, postal address, testing jurisdiction and request for accommodations. For security reasons, students are not allowed to update their name without contacting 1-877-EXAM-GED directly. Neither students nor state personnel are allowed to make changes to the demographic content captured in the Scheduling Questions after they have been completed. To request a special change, contact 1-877-EXAM-GED.
