Here are the top five things you should know to help your students successfully prepare for and take the online GED test.

1) Let your students know that the Online Proctored (O.P.) GED® test is an option to them. 

  • State-by-state information about online testing is available here:
  • Eligible students need to have a computer, webcam and internet, quiet and private workspace, a government-issued ID and ‘Green’ GED Ready score within the last 60 days.

2) All the information students need to know about the O.P. test is available on 

  • Students can find information about eligibility, an overview of the testing process, exam rules, FAQs and more on our student online testing webpage.

3) Before test day students should practice with the Whiteboard tool to get comfortable before they test. 

4) Complete the online system check before scheduling—to make sure their equipment works properly. 

  • Students should do a system test to make sure their computer, webcam and internet connection meet the requirements for testing online.

5) The content on the O.P. test is the same content they would see when testing in person. 

  • Test questions, timing and scoring are the same as tests taken in person at authorized test centers.
