The GED Ready® Practice Test

Give your students the only practice test designed to assess how they will do on the 2014 GED® test.


  • Tells students if they are likely to pass
    The GED Ready® practice test has the same look and feel as the real GED® test, and gives students firsthand experience answering computer-based test questions written and developed by the test’s creators. The score report tells students if they are likely to pass or if it’s too close to call and they should keep studying.
  • Same-day scores
    Evaluate your test-takers’ same-day GED Ready® practice test scores and decide if they’re prepared to test. You’ll be able to identify areas of strength and weakness and immediately work on improvements.
  • Focused study plans
    The GED Ready® practice test is synced to publisher books and courses and gives every student their own targeted study plan based on the skills he or she needs to work on, including specific guidance on what to study in publishers’ test prep materials.

The GED Ready® practice test went through the same norming and standardization study that the official test went through. That means the questions are designed to mimic the official test and can be predictive of how a student will perform on the official test. Targeted study plans students receive after taking the GED Ready® practice test will contain feedback on over 50 different traits measured in the exam.

Make sure your students are prepared for the 2014 GED® test. Give them the GED Ready® practice test - the closest thing to taking the GED® test without actually taking the test.

The GED Ready® practice test for the Reasoning Though Language Arts and Science test subjects include a constructed response item (or “written response”). Please note that even though the GED Ready® practice test doesn't explicitly score student’s written responses, the score prediction model does take into account how students typically score on these items.

However, we encourage educators to give their students feedback on their responses. To review responses, ask your students to print their written response from their Enhanced Score Report.

Use the Constructed Response Resource Guides and Scoring Tools to help you give your students feedback on their responses.
