Arizona will become the first state to require students to pass a civics test to graduate from high school, following swift moves Thursday by state legislators and Gov. Doug Ducey.

Beginning with the class of 2017, students will have to prove they know the history and workings of American government before they can receive diplomas.

The bill sailed through the Arizona Legislature’s committees Thursday morning, was approved by both houses Thursday afternoon and was signed by Ducey Thursday evening.

The American Civics Act will require students to pass 60 of the 100 questions on the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization civics test. They can first take the test in eighth grade, and can retake it until they pass.a
