Michigan GED Test Overview

Michigan GEDThe General Educational Development (GED) Exams are a collection of examinations designed to determine whether or not a student has the educational expertise of a typical high school graduate. The GED Examinations are always given out in person at one of the testing centers in Michigan (see list of MI GED testing facilities at bottom of page).   Individuals who have not acquired a high school diploma are candidates for the Michigan GED exams. 

The GED Examination scores are benchmarked against the many graduating high school seniors.   Currently, the passing rating on the GED exams are equal to what the highest 60 % of high school graduating seniors would earn.  The GED credential is issued by Michigan for students living in Michigan.  The GED credential is sometimes considered to be equal to a MI high school diploma.
