The GED® (General Education Development) assessment is a set of four independent sub-exams that can be taken one (or more) at a time.

In the period 2014-2021, New York was offering the TASC exam for high school equivalency (HSE) testing, but that was discontinued at the end of 2021. Earlier TASC passing scores also count for the GED exam!

The four GED subject fields are English Language Arts Reading and Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

The GED exam measures basic knowledge at a level that compares to that of graduating HS students.

In most states, GED testing is available at certified test centers and online for qualifying candidates. Online GED testing is, however, not (yet) available in New York.
