This is a pre-assessment (or pretest, if you prefer!) for basic American Civics and Government. There are 25 questions total with an answer key provided. The topics range from the branches of government, the U.S. Constitution, governmental organization, and basic functions of the government itself. This is an easy tool you can use to assess where your students are at with this content before you begin teaching.
