A Wikipedia article describes the GED approximately as follows.
General Educational Development tests are a group of four subject tests which, when passed, certify that the test taker has American or Canadian high school-level academic skills.
The American Council on Education, which owns the GED trademark, coined the acronym to identify "tests of general educational development" that measure proficiency in science, mathematics, social studies, reading, and writing. Passing the GED test gives those who did not complete high school the opportunity to earn their high school equivalency credential, in the majority of the United States, Canada, or internationally.
The GED Testing Service is a joint venture of the American Council on Education and Pearson, is the sole developer for the GED test. The test is taken on computer, but tests must be taken in person. States and jurisdictions award a Certificate of High School Equivalency or similarly titled credential to persons who meet the passing score requirements.
In addition to English, the GED tests are available in Spanish, large print, audio, and braille. Tests and test preparation are also offered to persons incarcerated and on military bases in addition to more traditional settings. Individuals living outside the United States, Canada, or U.S. territories may be eligible to take the GED tests through Pearson Vue testing centers.
