Types of Questions on Part I

The GED Language Arts Writing Test has three basic question types. It is important that you have a clear understanding of the types of questions and the skills students need to be successful when answering them.


Approximately 45% of the questions on Part I of the Language Arts Writing Test require the student to make corrections in the content areas-organization, sentence structure, usage, and mechanics.

Correction items can involve one sentence, several sentences, a complete paragraph, or the entire passage. The student is provided a series of choices and asked what correction should be made.
