Curriculum and Instruction

High School Civics Test

Arizona will soon become the first state in the nation to require students to pass a civics test in order to graduate from high school.  Beginning with the class of 2017, students will have to prove they know the history and workings of American government before they can receive their diploma.  Students will be required to pass 60 of the100 questions on the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization civics test.  They can retake the test until they pass.

Civics Test Preparation Tools are available to K-12 Social Studies teachers via the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website.  Civics Test questions only represent a small portion of the AZ Social Studies standards. See the ADE Social Studies Standards page for articulations by grade level:
