2–3 p.m. Eastern

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invites you to participate in a national engagement on Friday, March 3, 2023, from 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern, to learn more about a nationwide trial for the naturalization test redesign initiative.

During the first part of the engagement, we will give an overview of the trial speaking and civics test design and provide information on volunteering for the trial tests. During the second part of the engagement, we will respond to questions on all aspects of the trial testing process. We also invite you to email comments on the trial testing to

On Dec. 14, 2022, USCIS announced that we will conduct a nationwide trial test of proposed changes to the speaking and civics test, as part of a naturalization test redesign initiative. The trial test will include proposed changes to the English-speaking portion of the test and updates to the content and format of the civics test. We are developing the trial test for the naturalization test redesign initiative in response to stakeholder feedback about the standardization and structure of the naturalization test.

USCIS is committed to public engagement, and sessions such as these provide us with valuable feedback as we work to improve our programs.
