**UPDATED for the new 2019 exam! This test will save you AP® Government teachers hours of work! The product includes a 40-question multiple choice test on the Legislative Branch and two FRQ options that have been designed according to the new 2019 course/exam description. This test covers themes such as: the powers of Congress, the structure and leadership of both houses, Congress' interaction with the other branches, the legislative process, gerrymandering, committees, methods of representative voting, etc. You can use this exam during the year for your unit tests OR as an end-of-the-year review before the AP® exam in May.

*Please note: The multiple choice section is fully editable and comes with an answer key. Each question has 4 answer choices to match the new exam format- check out the preview for some examples. The FRQ section comes in a PDF format with scoring guidelines.

I have also included my old Legislative Branch test, so you can use the questions for extra practice or quiz questions.

Please read my full terms of use in the product preview and understand that your purchase comes with a license to use this test in your classroom ONLY. Please do NOT post or share this test online in any capacity, as this compromises the integrity of the assessment.
