Can You Become A Citizen
John Reed ♦ August 14 2014 15:04:05

Even if you were born and raised within the borders of the United States of America –you may find some fissures in your basic knowledge of your Country by taking this short test.  Not to worry –YOU are the only one keeping score.  We're not collecting any data whatsoever; not even a cookie.

The "Official" U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' Citizenship test is comprised of four segments: 1)  The "Speaking Test":  Your ability to speak English will be determined by a USCIS Officer during your eligibility interview.  2)  "The Reading Test":  You must read aloud one out of three sentences correctly to demonstrate an ability to read in English.  3)  "The Writing Test":  You must write one out of three sentences correctly to demonstrate an ability to write in English.  4)  "The Civics Test":  There are 100 civics questions on the naturalization test.  During an "official" naturalization interview, you would be asked up to 10 questions from the list of 100 questions.

We have modified the format of the test –making this test a multiple choice test. This test inludes ten questions taken directly from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service website and replicates as closely as possible the scenario one might face during a nauralization testing session.  A respondent must answer a minimum of six questions correctly to pass this portion of the test.

One caveate here.  To compensate for one's abiliy to verbalize or write an answer during the nauralization process, we have included some "Gotcha" answers within the multiple choices.  Read the question carefully and choose your answer with equal care.  The correct and accepted answers of the official test is included, verbatim.

You may take this test as many times as you wish.

As we mentioned; there are ten questions used on this test –of the one hundred available questions.  The test is generated dynamically –which means each time you access this page, a different set of test questions will appear (that's the reason this issue was late to publish –debugging the script).  If you leave a question unanswered –that will count as a Wrong Answer on your final score.

The ideal situation here would be to make a note of any missed question and do some research on that topic.  Google-It!  There is also a wealth of information and study aids on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' website.
