Effective January 1, 2016, every public school student must pass a basic civics test, or alternate assessment, as a condition for receiving a high school diploma in the state of Utah. Utah Code Annotated 53A-13-109.5USBE Administrative Rule R277-700-8

The plan for administering this test in Jordan District is as follows:

  • Students will take the test starting in grade 8 in their required US History course. Seniors will also be given a chance as needed to pass the test through their required US Government and Citizenship course.

  • Testing results will be entered in Skyward under Educational Milestones. A "passed" indicator will then print on student transcripts.

  • The Civics test will be administered online through UTIPS: https://jordan.utips.org.

  • Students can log in and take the test at any time

  • Students may retake the test as many times as needed in order to pass.

  • For more information and study materials, visit Jordandistrict.org/assessments/citizenship-test
