Students will be taking the Arizona civics test on Tuesday, November 21. In order to pass the test, you must score 60% or higher. Passing this test is a graduation requirement from the state of Arizona. Your test results will be mailed home, and you will not have to take the test again once you get a passing score. 

The official list of 100 civics questions included on the naturalization test and free study materials in English and Spanish can be found on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website
