The U.S. History and Government Regents Examination is a standardized assessment given to students enrolled in New York State schools.
Generally given at the end of eleventh grade, this test is the culmination of one year of study in U.S. history and government. The test consists of 50 multiple choice questions, one thematic essay, and one document-based question (DBQ). Part A of the DBQ contains several short answer questions based on specific documents. Part B of the DBQ consists of an essay that requires students to analyze the documents from Part A.
Both the thematic essay and document-based question essay are accompanied by a scoring rubric that explains how each will be graded.
