    Default Can You Pass This 33-Question Civics Test?

    http://www.isi.org/quiz.aspx?q=FE5C3...ookieSupport=1

    The average score for all 2,508 Americans taking the following test was 49%; college educators scored 55%

    I got 27 out of 33 correct.

    I thought that some folks here might enjoy taking this.

    That's pretty good. I thought that the quiz had some pretty hard questions. For a few of them I really wasn't 100% sure.

    The frightening part is that the citizens, compared to elected officials, beat the elected officials in all but three areas. Most by a wide margin. It's sad to see how functionally illiterate our elected officials are about civics. Yet, we keep electing them.

    This was one of those exams where with almost each question I kept thinking there was some trick to the wording. Kept making me rethink my answers.

    10 years ago I wouldn't have been able to answer some of those questions the way I did. Having a kid and helping him with his homework has helped me remember quite a bit.

    29 of 33.

    Missed a Bill of Rights question, a first amendment question, the one about Socrates, and the one about the New Deal Supreme Court.

    And I too did better than I would have due to my recent refresher course from my kids in school.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    22, which is actually better than I expected as civics is not my strong suit (didn't even take it in high school, if I recall)

    30/33 for me.

    I messed the abortion question. I could've sworn it was legal in a majority of states prior to Roe v. Wade, which was my answer, and I felt Roe v. wade did establish some restrictions, but I got it wrong.

    Got the Socrates, Aristotle one wrong. I should have known it since I studied it (and my education's in English, not political science, US history, or government), but I had no idea.

    Style I missed the Scopes Monkey trial. Guessed on this one and thought one answer was too on the nose. I was wrong.

    28/33 for me. Looking at the ones I missed, I was thinking that's pretty embarrassing! I missed the Socrates question, the anti-Federalist, the Lincoln one, the Gettysburg one , and govt. spending during a severe recession.

    Pretty tough I thought. The only one that I was embarrassed to miss was the "governmnet of the people" question. I can't believe in retrospect that I didn't answer Gettysburg Address. I'd love to see Limbaugh, Beck & Hannity take this and see how much they really know. I wonder how Limbaugh would do with half his brain tied behind his back, just to make it fair, or if he'd use his talent on loan from God.

    Not bad, but I would've liked to have done better considering history is uh, my minor.
