something is wrong with this test.... result was I had 2 wrong answers... so I had to look up and see what I got wrong.

The wrong ones ware not my answers!!!
I even hit back button on my computer to make sure I did not check them by accident... my checked answers were different from the ones test is stating in final results..

How is that possible??????


The graph doesn't show which ones you got wrong, just how many you got wrong. There's a link on the left to a question-by-question breakdown; did you check that?

Yes, Q by Q break down is what I looked at... an it stated different answers from what I checked. That confused me so I used "Back key" just to make sure I did not somehow check different answer from what I was thinking .

9/11 - Yaaaay, I can still vote!

10/11 -- and for that one miss the coin flip came out the wrong way between mine and the right answer. :-(

Woot... I sadly missed the "US Congress majority question". For some reason I thought they didn't have either majority.

Unlike my photos which I submit to challenges here, I only missed one! Must be because I live 10 miles from DC!!

Well since it said "in the world", I took the test... 90% of the questions were not about what's going on in the world :).

The fact is that most Americans don't know what's going on in their country...most other nations watch politics and world news more.

I got a 9 out of 11, and the two questions I missed were not really that political in nature. Got Coal and Medicare wrong
05/03/2011 05:07:25 PM · #37
I don't need a test to prove that I don't have a clue.

I missed the obesity one because I read it wrong. I was reading the word obese, but my brain was thinking "overweight" and I put 50 percent instead of the correct 25 percent. Oh, well...I've been a news, history and political junkie since I was 9 years old so not too bad. LOL.

It shows the correct answers, not the answers you gave.

11/11
05/03/2011 07:26:07 PM · #43
I don't remember how to do a screen shot on my Mac, but I got 11/11.
Almost missed the Medicare question as I vacillated between Medicare and the National Debt.

One point deducted for forgetting cmd+shift+4

11/11! Much superior than any score in challenges here! (I guessed the Wisconsin thing though)
05/03/2011 07:39:07 PM · #46
10/11 better than 91% of americans. speaker of the house d'oh! But what has to be taken into consideration is that this test does not reflect the awareness of americans in general but instead reflects that of people so inclined to participate in a test like this. That being said, the only people who would do this in the first place would be someone who generally pays attention to the news and wants to validate that fact in a quantifiable medium. I'm sure that a lot of people ate some humble pie including myself! Nancy Pelosi, how last decade of me . . .
05/03/2011 08:58:12 PM · #47
ya... since i dont particularly pay attention to politics, and kind of dont care, i got 5 out 11. ehh oh well.

No, it shows both: with a different color for incorrect answers...

Great reasoning, but I, for example, just like to take tests.

11/11 - I try to be informed. The spending question I knew because I am in the healthcare industry. The one I guessed at was the obesity question.
