Content Areas of the GEDŽ Tests computer-based and paper-based.
The current 2002 GEDŽ tests series measure knowledge in five content areas:
- Language Arts Writing
- Language Arts Reading
- Social Studies
An important feature of the Language Arts Writing assessment is a written essay that documents your ability to write and
communicate effectively. Computer-based testers complete the essay portion of the test on a computer. Paper-based testers write
the essay portion. All test takers, even those taking Spanish or French versions, must complete the essay in English.
