CLEP American Government Practice Test

The CLEP American Government exam allows students who score high enough to gain college credit for the corresponding course. The test requires a general knowledge of topics such as the institutions and policy processes of the federal government, the history of the constitution, and political parties and interest groups.


The exam contains 100 questions with a time limit of 90 minutes. These 100 questions will test your knowledge of American government and politics (55%-60% of the exam), your understanding of the principles used to explain or justify various governmental structures and procedures (30%-35%), and your ability to analyze and interpret simple data that is relevant to American government and politics (10%-15%).

The vast amount of information you are required to know and apply for this test can be intimidating. We at Mometrix have designed a free practice test specifically for the CLEP American Government exam in an attempt to help students like you who want to succeed on test day.
