(Re)Writing History: Scoring GED® Social Studies Test Extended Response

Welcome to the VAILL Conference in Radford, Virginia, either in person or online!

I’m excited to focus on the new Extended Response on the GED® Social Studies Test. Test takers will have 25 minutes to read a text (called the stimulus) and write an organized response according to the directions (called the prompt).

GED® Testing Service created a Social Studies Extended Response Resource Guide that includes:

  • Two samples of readings and prompts.
  • 23 real responses from simulated test takers.
  • Detailed information on the scores provided by Subject Matter Experts.

We will explore portions of this guide to understand and practice scoring, then consider some instructional activities from Teaching Adults: A 2014 GED® Test Resource Book to prepare adult learners for this portion of the test (and life).

And here’s an additional graphic organizer that isn’t even in the book!
