Whew! I can stay

I’ll admit.  This was waaaay harder than I expected.

It’s from the Citizenship Challenge

There are two entry points – one for schools, teachers, and students where you log in and create a class to get access to the test and learning materials.

In my case, I just participated in the shortened quiz that doesn’t require you to log in.  I was presented with 10 questions and to pass the test, you need 75%.  (Doing the mathematics, that means at least 8 out of the 10 correct)

Honestly, the joy of this test was that it made me dig way back in my mind.  I hadn’t thought about the “Family Compact” in years.  Actually, a lot of years.  Maybe back in high school?

Fortunately, you get your results immediately.  It’s frustrating to think that I had to guess once or twice!

But, now motivated, I kept trying until I got my 10 out of 10.

How do you think you’ll do?

  1. I guess I need to study if I want to come up and stay. I guessed on 8 of them I think. I only got 5 right. I usually do VERY well on US quizzes of that type so I think I am safe south of your border.

  2. While I appreciate the resources from this organization/website, I didn’t always use them when I taught a prep course to adult newcomers preparing to write the citizenship test. The study book that is provided from the government was the best resource to help prepare for the questions on the actual test (20 questions/16 correct to pass). There is also an interview that could be done instead of a multiple choice test.

    This link shows a few examples of test questions and further study questions that point to the more general knowledge that will be required to pass the actual citizenship test.

    This page from Ministry of I & C outlines the steps to prepare for the test as well.

    Sometimes the various online resources would overwhelm or discourage the newcomers in my classes and I would aim to reassure them that the test wouldn’t be as difficult as it would sometimes seem from all the resources and sample tests online.

    Just sayin’ 🙂 Not to take away from your success at all 🙂
