The New GED Test


The GED test is a High School Equivalency (HSE) national examination developed by GED. The test is available to adults who did not graduate from high school or whose diplomas may not be recognized by New York State. In New York State, the GED is offered in English and Spanish.

When candidates pass the GED Test in Spanish, they receive a high school equivalency diploma with a designation of Spanish.

There are four tests in the GED Test Battery: language arts – reading and  writing; social studies; science and mathematics.

The tests take more than six hours to complete and include a direct writing assessment. To ensure that the content and skills measured by the tests remain closely matched to the contemporary high school curriculum, the tests undergo regular review.

The GED Tests cover the same subjects that people study in high school. Candidates are not required to know all of the information that is usually taught in high school, however, across the four tests, candidates are tested on their ability to read and process information, solve problems, and communicate effectively.
