WASHINGTON, Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Institutes for Research (AIR), on behalf of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service -- formerly known as the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service -- has been conducting an assessment of the current U.S. Naturalization Test to determine options for redesigning the test. In September 2005, AIR was asked to assess the Naturalization Test process to help determine how to make the test's content and testing procedures more efficient, fair, secure, and applicant-centered. AIR's report to Citizenship and Immigration Service considers the value and feasibility of strategies to rewrite the entire Naturalization Test, and to redesign only certain sections of the test, as well as strategies to continue using parts of the current test in their existing form. About AIR Established in 1946, the American Institutes for Research (AIR) is a nonpartisan not-for-profit organization that conducts behavioral and social science research on important social issues and delivers technical assistance both domestically and internationally in the areas of health, education, and workforce productivity.
