Overview of the GED® Test
The GED® test consists of four subtests on these subject areas:
Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts – reading and writing combined)|
Math (Mathematical Reasoning)
You will need a little over seven hours to complete the entire GED test battery, but you can take one test at a time within a 2-year time frame.
- Reasoning through Language Arts (reading and writing combined). Students need to be able to understand longer passages (400-900 words), read faster and scan for relevant information. Schedule: Reasoning through Language Arts will take 150 minutes (including a 10-minute break).
- Mathematical Reasoning. Students have access to an embedded calculator, the TI-30xs. Mathematical Reasoning is 115 minutes.
- Science. The test contains 40% Life Science, 40% physical science, and 20% Earth/Space science. Science is 90 minutes.
- Social Studies. The test contains 50% Civics and government, 20% United States history, 15% economics, and 15% geography and the world. Social Studies is 70 minutes.
The GED exam is offered in English and Spanish.
The GED exam has gone through its biggest renovation since it was introduced in 1942, and to remain a reliable option to determine a student’s capacities, the program standards have gone up. HiSET and TASC exams include five tests as the section ‘Literacy’ is split up in a reading and a writing test.
Keep in mind: The new GED program allows you to take one of the four tests (modules) at a time. Prepare for one section, pass that test, and move ahead to the next part. The passing score on each subtest is 145 on a 100-200 scale. Your scores are valid for two years from the moment of your first registration.
GED Prep Tips
Adult learners are engaged in multiple roles, and this impacts the time and the energy they can devote to their role as the student. Unlike many younger students, attending classes is not a full-time occupation for them. Usually, learning is a secondary activity that needs to be accomplished besides their tasks as parents, spouses, or full-time job so that they can spend less time on their study.
How to overcome this problem
- Prioritize your tasks. Rank all your tasks according to importance or urgency to plan your day and focus your mind.
- Remember the 80/20 rule also known as a Pareto rule. It means that 80 percent of your outcomes come from 20 percent of your inputs. Focus on the most crucial 20 percent of your workload, because your performance would still be high.
- Set realistic deadlines for your tasks
What else helps?
- Sharing the newly learned knowledge with friends or family
- Keeping a learning journal.
- Tracking your progress. I use trello.com. It helps me to keep track of my goals and helps me to realize what I learned by setting goals (written goals)
- Self-expressing online via blogs
