Freebase

  1. General Educational Development tests are a group of five subject tests which, when passed, certify that the taker has American or Canadian high school-level academic skills. The "GED" initialism is frequently misused to mean "general education degree" or "general education diploma," when in fact the GED brand was developed as a trademark to identify the "tests of general educational development," a term coined by the American Council on Education, the owner of the GED® trademark, in the 1940s to identify a battery of tests that measure proficiency in science, mathematics, social studies, reading and writing. Passing the GED test gives those who did not complete high school the opportunity to earn their high school equivalency credential, but no state awards a "GED" per se. The GED Testing Service, a joint venture of the American Council on Education and Pearson, is the sole developer for the GED test. The test can be taken by paper or on computer, but tests must be taken in person. Jurisdictions award a Certificate of High School Equivalency or similarly titled credential to persons who meet the passing score requirements. Passing the GED® test, therefore, gives those who did not complete high school the opportunity to earn their high school equivalency credential.
