GED Reasoning Through Language Arts Exam
Everything you need to know!
The GED Reasoning Through Language Arts exam lasts 2.5 hours. The first section of the exam includes reading and language questions and concludes with an essay. You will have a 10-minute break before the second section, which includes reading and language questions only. There are a variety of question types including multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, drop-down, and drag-and-drop.
Your reading comprehension skills are assessed via questions based on single passages and on passages that are paired together. Most questions (75%) are based on informational texts, which include workplace documents, general nonfiction, and nonfiction related to general interest social studies and science topics. The remaining 25% of the questions are based on fiction selections.
Your language skills are assessed via questions that require you to review and edit written text and select words and phrases so that the final product is written correctly. These questions involve selecting the correct sentence structure, agreement (subject-verb and pronoun-antecedent), capitalization, punctuation, homonyms, and possessives.
