Civics Test

Beginning in the 2016-2017 school year, Idaho students will be required to take the United States Citizenship Test as outlined in Idaho Code §33-1602.7. The civics test may be taken at any time after enrolling in grade 7 and it may be repeated as often as necessary for the student to pass the test.

District are required to assess all one hundred (100) questions of the US Citizenship Naturalization Test; however, districts have the ability to decide how the assessment is given, i.e. multiple choice, question and answer, orally, etc. Districts will also determine the passing percent a student will need in order to fulfill the graduation requirement. Students may take the assessment anytime between their 7th and 12th grade year. Please note that the instructions on the assessment by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services are not the rules for district administration, but for someone to become a US citizen, please disregard.
