TESOL Submits Comments Outlining Concerns Over New U.S. Citizenship Exam

by David Cutler | 12/09/2020
Recently, the United States Department of Homeland Security and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a revised United States citizenship exam. The first update to the exam since 2008, TESOL International Association believes there are a number of serious issues and flaws with the 2020 version of the exam.

In formal comments sent to USCIS this week, TESOL Interim Executive Director Rosa Aronson outlined and detailed the association's concerns and recommendations regarding the new exam. Ultimately, TESOL recommends that USCIS should continue to implement the 2008 exam until the 2020 exam can be properly field tested and receives feedback from outside stakeholders and experts.
