During the 2015-16 school year, Wisconsin rolled out a new assessment called the Wisconsin Forward Exam. The Exam is for Brookfield Central 10th Graders only and is designed to gauge how well students are doing in relation to the Wisconsin Academic Standards. These standards outline what students should know and be able to do in order to be college and career ready. The Forward Exam is administered online in the spring of each school year.
Wisconsin state law (Wis.Stats. 118.33(1m)(a)1) requires all school districts to give a 100 question civics exam to all students beginning with the Graduating Class of 2017. The questions are very specific: they are the exact 100 questions that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) utilizes for the US citizenship test. Students must answer 65 questions correctly in order to meet the graduation requirement. The Civics exam is a 100 question, multiple choice assessment (as administered in Elmbrook), that are the exact 100 questions from the US Naturalization Test.
The civics test is found on Canvas for students to take at any point. The exam can be taken multiple times.
