Local students survey community about the U.S. Citizenship test
A group of five seniors, Eric Gery, Mehak Mann, Donna Albee, Jessica Bowlus and Elizabeth Chen, from the International Community School are conducting a survey in the community for their AP Comparative Government and Politics Class. In order to gain a large sample size the students are reaching out to communities throughout the region to take the survey.
The anonymous survey asks participants their opinions on the of the process for obtaining US citizenship. A portion of the survey is a Citizenship Test Simulation, including questions pulled from the official citizenship test. Participants are provided their score and the correct answers, also taken from the official test, at the completion of the test.
Citizenship is not a factor for taking the survey. It is the groups’ hope to receive responses from a variety of citizenship backgrounds for more accurate results. The group assures on the opening page of the survey that “All information collected is for research purposes (school project) and is 100% anonymous.”
According to the U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services website, “the civics test is an oral test and the USCIS Officer will ask the applicant up to 10 of the 100 civics questions. An applicant must answer 6 out of 10 questions correctly to pass the civics portion of the naturalization test.” Click here to read the full list of 100 questions and answers the U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services could ask.
