Take the Civic Literacy Exam

I caught this over at Doug Ross. Something to do on a winter’s day. Enjoy!

The Intercollegiate Studies Institute offers an extremely interesting Full Civic Literacy Exam


  • 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.

    I did!

    My score:

    You answered 31 out of 33 correctly — 93.94 %

    It is shameful that college educators scored 55%. Sheesh.

      Sad indeed. There were a couple that were darn close, otherwise no excuse.


      • Always On Watch Says:

        Most of the questions were quite easy. I find it difficult to understand how anyone could score lower than 70%!

    81.82 for me, I changed a couple of answers which if I left alone I would have scored higher. Flip flopping never pays!


    • bunkerville Says:

      That’s what they say. The levee question hung me up, and a couple more if I had thought more about it. Looks like we can be college professors!

    32 out of 33. Not bad for a state educated leftist.

    Missed the one on the anti-Federalists.


    • Ducky's here Says:

      typo — that’s Ducky.


      • bunkerville Says:

        I figured that one would catch you.
