The FCLE assesses students' civic literacy competency. It includes 80 multiple-choice questions and four domains with 20 questions in each section (American Democracy, United States Constitution, Founding Documents, and Landmark Impact on Law and Society). Items may use a variety of stimuli, such as primary sources, charts or graphs, or similar stimuli. Items may also ask students to consider or interpret a scenario to answer questions. The FCLE administration is untimed and takes approximately 1 hour to complete.
