GED Test History
The GED test began in 1942. At the time, the United States was fighting World War II. Many returning GIs wanted to continue their interrupted education. Taking the GED test was a way for them to attain a high school diploma equivalent. Civilians were able to take the test beginning in 1947.
The test has been updated several times over its 60 year history, the last time in 2014. The current test uses the Common Core Standards as a basis for student achievement. It is now a completely computer-based test, and the reading and writing portions have been combined into a single language arts section.
