The Tests of General Educational Development (GED) are internationally recognized. They have been designed to measure academic skills and knowledge in core content areas that are learned during the four years of high school. When an adult passes the GED test the resulting Arkansas High School Diploma certifies that he or she has attained knowledge and skills associated with high school completion. The GED Tests battery includes subject area tests in Language Arts, Writing, Social Studies, Science, Reading, and Mathematics. GED tests are offered in English, Spanish, and French and are free of charge to all who take the test.
