This is a Civics Quiz originally developed by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute to determine the amount of civics knowledge students gained in various colleges and universities. What they found was that many actually scored lower after attending college. Now this test is widely used to test citizens in general. On average, citizens score an “F”, and politicians slightly lower than the general public! I urge you to take the test – it is important to understand the general low level of civics knowledge that we have, making it impossible to be a good citizen!
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
