CAN YOU PASS THIS 10-QUESTION ARIZONA HIGH SCHOOL CITIZENSHIP TEST?


To determine students’ level of basic civic knowledge, The Goldwater Institute surveyed Arizona high school students with questions drawn from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) item bank, which consists of 100 questions given to candidates for United States citizenship. You can take a practice test here.

It’s even worse when it comes to tax questions. Adults get an ‘F’ on a ten-question income tax quiz.

The longstanding practice has been for candidates to take a test on 10 of the 100 items. Those applying for citizenship would have to study all 100 questions since they did not know what 10 questions would be asked. A minimum of six correct answers — a failing percentage — is required to pass. The service recently reported a first-try passing rate of 92.4 percent.

The Goldwater Institute survey, conducted by a private survey firm, gave each of the students in the survey 10 items from the USCIS item bank. The Goldwater Institute grouped results according to the type of school students attend — public, charter, or private. . . . All three groups of Arizona high school students scored alarmingly low on the test. Only 3.5 percent of Arizona high school students attending public schools passed the 10-question set of questions.
