Student Booklets for the 2006 Civics Assessment

For the 2006 assessment, test developers chose 16 blocks from the previous civics assessment—four at grade 4 and six at grades 8 and 12—and created two new blocks at each grade.Two blocks at each grade from the NAEP 2006 civics assessment were released and are available to the public via the NAEP Questions Tool. Released blocks of questions are not used in later assessments.

The tables below display the NAEP 2006 civics assessment student booklet configurations for grade 4, grade 8, and grade 12.
