Graphic Skills on the GED Tests

In today’s world, data is often represented visually for increased impact. People can grasp the meaning of data more quickly when it is presented visually.

Pick up a newspaper, such as USA Today, and quickly look through the pages. What graphics do you see? Most likely you see photos, graphs, tables, charts, and a weather map of the nation.

Because of the importance of graphics in daily communication and in the workplace, the GED 2002 Series Tests emphasize them. In fact, many items on three of the GED Tests are based on graphics or a combination of prose and graphics:

  • 60% of Social Studies Test questions
  • 50% of Science Test questions
  • 50% of Mathematics Test questions
