    Current Events Test

    Test Your News IQ Q1 - Pew Research Center

    A SHORT CURRENT EVENTS TEST
    This is a terrific test. And it shows results in a number of ways. It sure indicates that the majority of Americans don't know what's going on. No wonder our politicians take such advantage. Interesting and simple test. Itís astonishing that so many people got less than half right. These results say that 80% of the (voting) public doesnít have a clue Ė and thatís pretty scary. There are no tricks here - just a simple test to see if you are current on your information.


    Test your knowledge with 12 questions, then be ready to shudder when you see how others did.

    I got 10 right, apparently I can't convert feet into miles :^)
    The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and you miss all you are traveling for.
