Civics Literate 

I got sucked in by the Yahoo headline that US officials flunk test of American history, economics, civics, and the article's statement that US elected officals on average score 44%, while "ordinary Americans" score about 49%. So off I went to take the quiz. My results:

You answered 31 out of 33 correctly — 93.94 %

Average score for this quiz during November: 77.6%

So it appears that people are doing a lot better on the quiz this month than in the time period the article reported on. The Girl's take on this? "You're such a geek."
