I’m old enough that I actually had a full course of civics and (Tennessee) government in eighth grade in a little country town (population 1100). So I had an advantage in taking this test that I ask you to try:

The Shaping of the American Mind: The Diverging Influences of the College Degree & Civic Learning on American Beliefs

The average score for all 2,508 Americans taking the following test was 49%; college educators scored 55%. Can you do better?

My results;

Civics Quiz

You answered 33 out of 33 correctly — 100.00 %

Average score for this quiz during October: 73.4%

I am heartened by the fact that so far October is running above the test average previously. I blame Beck, Palin and the Tea Party.
