About the 2014 Mathematical Reasoning Test

The new 2014 GED Mathematical Reasoning Test from GED Testing Service is computer-based and takes about 90 minutes.

There are two parts to the mathematics test: quantitative problem solving and algebraic problem solving, with a focus on an understanding of fundamentals. Questions appear in a variety of formats: multiple choice, drag and drop, hot spot, and fill in the blank.

From the GED Testing Service website, here is what to expect on the mathematical reasoning test:

  • Approximately 45 percent of the test focuses on quantitative problem solving, and approximately 55 percent focuses on algebraic problem solving.
  • You will be tested on procedural skill and fluency as well as problem solving.
  • Problem solving skills are measured in both academic and workforce contexts.
  • The statistics and data interpretation standards are also measured in the GED® Social Studies and Science Tests.
  • You will be provided with an on-screen calculator, the Texas Instruments TI-30XS Multiview scientific calculator, for use on most of the items.
