Steve D’Ippolito sent me this civics literacy exam by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute. It’s 33 questions, and here’s the summary:

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.

Both Paul and I got 100%, although we had to make a few educated guesses.

It’s appalling that the average score is about 50%. (That’s just proof that our government schools need more money, right?!?) Amazingly politicians did even worse.

If you take the quiz, tell us your score in the comments!
