One test measures knowledge of African American history. Types of measures include credit by examination, item banks, and end-of-course tests. All ages are represented but the majority of tests target grade 7 and above. Populations tested include: teachers, high school students, college students and adult students at the high school level. Some achievement batteries include social studies subtests that contain U.S. history questions.
