Pop Quiz

I know, I know, the syllabus says nothing about quizzes.  Add/Drop forms are available from the TA.

Captain TightPants pointed me over to this civics quiz, and unlike a lot of other quizzes I've taken, this one is actually about civics, not the latest topics in the headlines.

I got a 96.97% when I missed one.  How did y'all do?

I got 31 out of 33 correct — 93.94 %

I'll take that. I think my poly-sci and philosophy profs would have been happy.

I'm guessing the poli sci and history profs weren't present in their testing population. If they were, I fear for the Republic.

I had a 90.91% after a 30 of 33 performance. I'm pretty sure I aced the history and government portions and botched a few of the econ questions.

Good quiz - as an non-american i still managed to score 26 out of 33 correctly — 78.79 %

Julie, when you look at how poorly the site says that the average American does on that test, that's phenomenal. I'm really beginning to think 18 year olds ought to have to pass the citizenship test.

You answered 33 out of 33 correctly — 100.00 %

In my high school (circa 1982), the class was called "Civics and Economics", and actually taught...civics and economics. Yes, I paid attention.
