Every Arizona high school student will have to answer civics questions correctly to graduate under legislation signed into law in mid-January by Gov. Doug Ducey.

The bill, which Ducey called for in his State of the State Address, made it from House and Senate committees to the governor’s desk in one day despite objections from some lawmakers and advocates for schools that it constitutes an unfunded mandate.

The American Civics Act will make high school students pass the same civics test required of new citizens with a score of 60 percent or better to gain the social studies credit necessary for graduation.

Think you can pass the test? Take our 10-question quiz below. Good luck.
