Online Student Practice Quizzes
The ALRC has developed four online quizzes to provide practice of the history/government content of the citizenship test. Each quiz is self-correcting and comes in two versions: PowerPoint and Microsoft Word. Students can access the quizzes for independent practice, while teachers can download the quizzes to a computer for classroom use. The focus is on the content in the 100 Civics Questions.

The fun and effective activities include matching, fill-in-the-blank, vocabulary, and listening/dictation practice for the reading/writing tests and the 100 Civics Questions.
