Can You Pass a Civics Quiz?

Posted September 18, 2007 4:17 p.m. EDT

The Intercollegiate Studies Institute's National Civic Literacy Board (what a name!) released a new report today about how poorly college students did on a recent test of civic literacy.

The 60-question test asks all kinds of questions about our history, government, economy and foreign relations.  The report shows that the 14,000 freshmen and seniors who took it last year earned a paltry average score of 53 percent.

Click here to take the quiz and post your results below.  It's a tough one!  I got an 85.  I'll be sure to include that little fact in my upcoming presidential campaign.

Take the quiz -- don't Google anything -- and brag on yourself below.
