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.
Pete and other immigrants should do very well as they have to take a civics exam as part of the naturilization process, yet with most of the country getting an "F" ...well this is a serious problem that explains rather a lot.
How'd ya'll do?
I'd gloat...but I'm a 42 year old undergraduate, so this is not rocket science, and yet...
Few Americans have studied all 3 subjects at a college level, and probably fewer still remember all that they learned.

A politically active conservative OUGHT to get 100% on this test, or at least damned near.

Heck, I got 31 out of 33, and (as I mentioned in a previous comment) I'm not even an American. I did take some economics electives in university, and I'll admit to making educated guesses on a few questions.
