GED testing offers the individual who did not complete high school the opportunity to earn the equivalent of a high school diploma—the GED. When an adult passes the GED Tests battery, the resulting GED credential certifies that he or she has attained subject matter knowledge and skills associated with high school completion. The GED credential is accepted for college entrance and employment.
