Survey Says Most Americans Would Fail Citizenship Test

Most Americans would fare pretty poorly on the U.S. citizenship test, according toย  a new survey .ย  The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation had a random sample of 1,000 citizens answer questions drawn from the official citizenship test.

The survey found just over one-third of respondents earned a passing grade of 60 percent or higher.

Older test-takers scored better, with 74 percent of people 65 and over passing the test.

Past surveys on the subject have turned up similar results.

In aย  survey from 2012 , just 35 percent of respondents passed a similar 10-question test.

The civics portion ย of the real citizenship test consists of 10 questions drawn from a publicly available list of 100 questions.
