The 2002 series GED® Test

The current test series is the 2002 Series GED® Test—the fourth test series developed by GED Testing Service. The test is available in English, Spanish, and French and covers the academic areas of a high school education:

  • Language Arts, Reading
  • Language Arts, Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies

A high school diploma remains the primary ticket to many entry-level jobs, and is also a prerequisite for promotions, occupational training, and postsecondary education. In an ideal society, everyone would graduate from high school. Although that is not a reality today, GED Testing Service offers the only nationally recognized opportunity to earn a high school-equivalency credential.

The 2002 Series GED® Test is delivered in two formats:  paper and computer.

  • Pencil-and-paper testing is delivered in a testing center using a test booklet and answer sheet
  • Testing on computer is delivered in a testing center on a computer, and requires basic computer skills

Both delivery methods use the same 2002 Series GED® Test. This test will be in use until the new assessment is released in 2014.
