We are very excited to announce that the Americanism and Government Scholarship test will be available online! Any student that has access to a computer and the internet can take the test, but taking the test in the classroom is still the preferable method. Students will know their test score as soon as they answer the essay question.
Students will be able to access this test in just 4-easy steps!
1. Please read the instructions below, and at the test site thoroughly. Test will ONLY be accessible from
March 31, 2014- April 11, 2014.
2. Student will enter registration information.
3. Student will log in using the email and password they created.
4. CLICK HERE to begin the test.
Once the students begin the test, they will have 1 hour. NOTE: Experience is it will easily fit into class periods and does not require an entire hour. They will not be able to restart or pause. Their answers will be final and they will not be able to change them. Failure to answer the essay question will disqualify them from being eligible for a scholarship. This is not an open book test and students are not allowed to use outside resources to take this test. During the test if the student signs out of the site, closes the browser or hits the back button the test will terminate.
