Civics in Action

A Statewide Effort to Promote Informed Citizenship and Start a Dialogue about the Constitution

The NH Bar Association continues to offer this adult-focused civics education and awareness program, Civics in Action (CIA). Presentations ask adult audiences, “Can You Pass the Test?” as participants are asked the same questions posed to those seeking US citizenship. The presentation provokes answers to the questions: Do most citizens know enough about US government to pass this test themselves? What does that say about our level of awareness as citizens in a democracy?

Can You Pass the Test?

The naturalization self-test is a study tool to help you test your knowledge of U.S. history and government. The actual civics test is NOT a multiple choice test. The civics test is an oral test. During your naturalization interview, you will be asked up to 10 questions from the list of 100 questions. You must answer 6 out of 10 questions correctly to pass the civics portion of the naturalization test. This practice test contains 25 questions.

If you are interested in using this program for your community organization or club, please e-mail Law Related Education Coordinator, Robin E. Knippers, or call her at 603-715-3259 for more information.
