Civic Literacy Exam [View all]

I searched for this and found some on DU2 and thought it was an interesting test: ( Mods if this is a dupe please remove)

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 missed 8 which is 75.76%

Pretty good for a guy who took my last civics class in 1973.
Most of my wrong ones were easy ones.

See how ya do.
