The 2014 GED is a certificate awarded by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction for successfully completing tests in four high school academic areas:
Reasoning through Language Arts (Reading/Writing) (150 minutes/10 minute break)
Science (90 minutes)
Social Studies (90 minutes)
Mathematical Reasoning (90 minutes)
GED test scores are based on a 200 point scale where 150 points is a passing score in each academic area; test scores 170 and over will earn the distinction of “GED Honors.”
Who can take the GED?
You may take the GED if you are at least 18 1/2, or if the class with which you entered 9th grade has graduated from high school. You must be a Wisconsin resident.
