US officials flunk test of American history, economics, civics:

Yahoo! News: ‘US elected officials scored abysmally on a test measuring their civic knowledge, with an average grade of just 44 percent, the group that organized the exam said Thursday.’

I scored 31 out of 33, but I took my time to consider each question carefully. I wonder if the 2500 randomly-seleted test takers were given the test at a shopping mall or some other busy, noisy place? Or given the test verbally?

Take the quiz.
