Failing History II

Although higher than Florida's requirement of scoring 23 out of 100, Alabama high school students need to receive a score of 52 out of 100 to pass the history portion of the state's graduation exam.

The test covers American history from the early days of the nation through World War II.

Based on the new passing score, 55 percent of 10th-graders who took the test in March passed it.
