General ignorance

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%.

Take the Full Civic Literacy Exam.

I scored 97%. Not bad, although I somehow managed to blow a quote that I should have known. But yes, it’s official, I am in fact more knowledgeable than those esteemed intellectuals, the college educators of the nation.

Such a surprise.

UPDATE – I had Ender take the quiz. No economics yet, hasn’t ever lived in the States, but still scored 63%. I didn’t realize how different his perspective is from mine until the WWII question, when he mused out loud “I suppose they must mean the United States”.
