Ensure that your students are well prepared for the citizenship process and USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) interview. Let CASAS citizenship assessments help you meet that goal!

  • The Citizenship Interview Test (CIT) is a one-on-one oral assessment that simulates the citizenship applicant's English-language interview with a USCIS examiner. Give your students self-confidence in the speaking and listening skills they'll need for a successful interview experience! Please visit the Remote Testing for California webpage.

  • The Reading for Citizenship test series is designed to motivate beginning readers to improve their citizenship-focused reading skills. Make sure your students go into their USCIS interview ready to demonstrate their abilities to read basic English!

  • The Government and History for Citizenship tests reveal how much students know about American government and history. Citizenship applicants must demonstrate a solid knowledge of U.S. "civics" to complete the citizenship process successfully!
