Default Interesting US civics test

http://www.americancivicliteracy.org...rces/quiz.aspx

Some of these questions are actually pretty tough.

You answered 54 out of 60 correctly 90.00 %
Average score for this quiz during September: 74.6%
Average score since September 18, 2007: 74.6%

How'd you do?

The test takes about 15-20 minutes to complete.

I'm curious to find out how much the average OOT'er (who will respond with their score) knows about general US history and economics questions.

You can take the quiz as often as you like, however, your score will only count once toward the monthly average.

75%, which I guess is not embarrassing for a non-American.

Still lol @ the idea being able to answer this quiz indicates education.

By the way, I like how the average monthly score has gone down since kipin started sending OOT over there.

about 72% for me.

I guarantee the average score of a US citzen would be much, much lower. I'm guessing 100 truly random sampled people would bomb this test hard.

However, to the type of person a test like this interests ("Hey, a civics test? I'll take 10 minutes and do it.") about a 70-75% score sounds about right. Some of those questions are indeed tough.

Pretty sure I got all the history/government ones right, but I need to learn more about philosophy and economics I guess.
