Civics Test Manual available


A Civics Test Manual is available to offer potential guidance to districts in preparation for the administration of the legislatively required exam.

This document provides considerations for the administration, implementation, scoring and recording of results on the Civics Test. Additionally, the manual includes two complete 100-question sample versions of the test, both in short answer and multiple choice formats.

Visit the Kentucky Department of Education’s Civics Test webpage for more information. For questions, contact Lauren Gallicchio at ​


  1. By the end of the school year, my fifth grade students can answer, explain and discuss all 100 questions. When I read this, I was shocked because I assumed all high school students would know all if these civic questions. I am pretty sure, as well, none of my students would score below 100% on the civics test.
