FCLE

The FCLE assesses students' civic literacy competency . It includes 80 multiple-choice questions and four domains with 20 questions in each section (American Democracy, United States Constitution, Founding Documents, and Landmark Impact on Law and Society).  The FCLE is untimed and takes approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete.   Please visit the civic literacy competency webpage to review test preparation resources, to review questions and answers, to learn more about the civic literacy graduation requirement, and options to taking the FCLE.

To test for the first time, students must be enrolled in either AMH 2020 or POS 2041or previously received a letter grade in either course. This is limited to the students starting Fall 2021 and beyond.

Retesting requires a 30-day waiting period.  Department Chair approval is required after the second attempt.
