The New Redesigned Naturalization Test
US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced the 100 new questions and answers that comprise the redesigned civics component of the new naturalization test.
“We are very proud of this new test, and the open manner that we worked with our stakeholders throughout this entire process,” said USCIS Director Emilio Gonzalez. ”Together, we developed a test that will encourage citizenship applicants to learn and identify with the basic civic values that unite us as Americans.”
The revised naturalization test will help strengthen assimilation efforts by emphasizing fundamental concepts of American democracy, basic U.S. history, and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. It will also promote patriotism among prospective citizens.
What’s New in the Redesigned Naturalization Test?
The redesigned test is all about understanding the concepts of democracy and citizenship rather than the rote memorization of historical facts. It is the hope of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that the new test will encourage applicants to identify with American values. As Alfonso Aguilar, chief of the Office of Citizenship at USCIS has said, “It’s no longer a test about how many starts are on the flag or how many stripes..It’s a test that describes and captures the applicant’s knowledge of those aspects of American history, society and civics that they will one day be raising their hands to support.”
What's On the Naturalization Test?
The test is comprised of a civics portion to test your understanding of American history, society and civics; as well as an English language test which shows that you are able to speak, read and write English in a manner which is easily understood by the USCIS interviewing officer.
- Civics: You will be asked 10 questions from a list of 100 questions. You must correctly answer at least 6 of the 10 questions to pass the civics portion of the exam. See the Naturalization Test: Civics (History and Government) Questions (English).
- Speaking: The USCIS officer will assess if your understand English by an exchange of general questions and answers throughout the course of the interview.
- Reading: You must read one of three sentences in a manner that demonstrates to the USCIS officer that you understand the meaning of the sentence. See the Reading Vocabulary for the Redesigned (New) Naturalization Test.
