The Trump administration is reformulating the test that people must take to become naturalized U.S. citizens, a change that is currently being developed and likely will include some new, unspecified, questions that will mirror what U.S. students typically learn in civics classes. In addition to a reading and writing test, candidates must take a short exam based on 100 published questions. Officials pick up to 10 questions from the list; test-takers must answer six or more questions correctly to pass. In a typical test, candidates are asked the question orally and must provide an answer; this quiz is set up as multiple choice, and questions were chosen at random, using a number sequence randomizer.
Here is a story about the move: Trump administration planning changes to U.S. citizenship test.
