U.S. Citizenship Civics Test – Of course you can pass. Right?

Persons applying for U.S. citizenship have to pass a civics test asking basic questions about American history and government. Approximately 93 percent of these citizenship-seekers succeed, but only 65 percent of native-born Americans could answer correctly when asked the same questions.

The Civics Education Initiative, sponsored by the Joe Foss Institute, requires high school students to pass the test as a requirement for graduation. This sets the very basic standard for civic knowledge.

Do you think you can pass? Take the test and see!
