Full Civic Literacy Exam (from our 2008 survey)
Are you more knowledgeable than the average citizen? The average score for all 2,508 Americans taking the following test was 49%; college educators scored 55%. Can you do better? Questions were drawn from past ISI surveys, as well as other nationally recognized exams.
I got a 96.97% score, which means I missed one question.
I expect my readers to do as well or better. I have my standards, you know.
Seriously, this is all stuff that I was taught in high school back when dinosaurs ruled the earth. That very little of this is taught in the public schools these days is a disgrace. They’re too busy teaching kids about racism, “social justice”, human sexuality, and other trivia.
But I’m just an old fashioned, out of touch, curmudgeon.
