Why take the GED® Test?
The GED® test can help you move on to the next level—college, technical training, or a better job. For most employers, colleges and universities, and branches of the military, passing the GED® test proves that you’re ready to meet the challenge. If you have children or grandchildren, you may want to take the GED® test to encourage them to pursue their education. Or you may want to take the GED® test just to feel good about reaching a goal you set for yourself.

The Arkansas GED® Testing Program serves all Arkansans who are 16 years or older, not enrolled in or graduated from high school, and who meet other state requirements regarding residency and testing eligibility.

Students are able to take the GED® test at the Pulaski County Adult Education Center location at 4300 Haywood Street, North Little Rock, AR. Students are scheduled to take the Practice Test initially to determine eligibility to take the Official Test. Practice Testing is done on Monday and Wednesday, 8:00am to 4:30pm. Official Testing is scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday, 8:00am to 4:30pm with night testing on Tuesday night from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.

The GED® credential is based on five tests. The test covers reading, writing, social studies, science, and mathematics. The tests also measure communication, information-processing, problem-solving, and critical-thinking skills. The GED® test is designed to measure academic skills and knowledge in subjects that are learned during four years of high school. Before taking the GED® test in Arkansas, you must take and pass the official GED Practice Tests through an approved Adult Education Center. Starting in 2014 The GED® test will be offered online and will cost the student.
