GED Test Registration

General Education Development (GED) Testing

Official GED Test 

The GED test given at Butler provides you with the opportunity to earn a State of Kansas high school diploma by measuring major academic skills and knowledge in core content areas that are usually learned during four years of high school.  

The eight and a half hour test battery measures achievement in the following four subject areas:

  • Reasoning through Language Arts
  • Mathematical Reasoning
  • Social Studies
  • Science

GED tests are administered to approximately 700,000 people every year. One out of seven high school diplomas granted in the United States are based on passing the GED test. GED testing at Butler is completed in one of our certified PearsonVUE testing centers located at our El Dorado and Andover locations. Each testing session has limited space, so early registration is advised.
