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.

5 star review

"Dr. Donnelly is a wonderful teacher. He is quick to pinpoint weaknesses and, in many cases, turn them into strengths. He always has a structured lesson plan and pertinent homework assignments and puts aside time in the lesson to go over "trouble problems" from the previous lesson. I highly recommend taking a prep course with him. His patience, humor, and kindheartedness makes an otherwise uncomfortable standardized test almost enjoyable."

"Dr. Donnelly tutored my son. My son learned a few steps to help him solve the problems faster and correctly. Every lesson helped my son feel confident. My son constantly talks about how Dr. Donnelly has taught him skills that he is able to use in his classes at school. Dr. Donnelly was also very good at being able to work around a person's schedule. I highly recommend him, he is a great tutor. Thank you Dr. Donnelly!"
