The first bill passed in the current legislative session was the American Civics Act (HB 2064) which requires students to pass a civics test in order to graduate from high school beginning with the class of 2017. School districts and charters will determine how to implement the administration of this test. While ADE will not manage or oversee the administration of this newly required civics test, the Assessment Section intends to provide guidance on appropriate test administration and test security practices by early school year 2015- 2016.
