Extended Response ( GED Essay)
After completing the first section of the Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts-RLA) test of the GED® exam, you can begin with the “Extended Response” section. Here you are asked to write your essay, and you need to do so via analysis of various arguments that are presented to you in two sample texts.
In the Extended Response (writing) portions of the GED test, a topic will be introduced through one or more reading passages. You will be asked to analyze the topic, and the arguments.
To complete your essay, you have 45 minutes and unused time from the first part is not counted. So you better take that time to double-check your answers in the first part of the RLA section before you start working on the second (the Extended Response) part.
You must be very clear in writing a thesis statement, and your introduction must be clearly stated as well. After the introduction, you must write some four to six paragraphs that include supporting arguments, followed by a paragraph that includes your conclusions. To jot down some rough notes, you will receive an erasable tablet.
Grammar part of the GED RLA Test
In the Grammar portions of the GED® test, you will need to demonstrate an understanding of Punctuation rules, Pronoun Usage, Sentence Correction and Contextual Clues.
You should never choose a longer, more complicated, or wordier replacement if a simple one does.
