I got 44/50 for 88%. I guess that Physics degree paid for something. ;)

Scientific Literacy quiz

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Thu Jan 12, 2012 5:47 pm

This isn't a fully comprehensive quiz, but it was fun to take. For me, at least. I know there's other people out there in Waze land who might enjoy seeing how much scientific information they know/remember.

http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2011/1 ... -our-quiz/

50 questions does seem kind of long, but whatever. I learned a few things along the way, too.

Scores:
Alan - 72% (second-guessed myself on 6 of the wrong ones which I would have gotten right!)

Nice work! That question is more about "how much odd news do you remember?" versus being a philatelist or paleontologist (or paleontobiologist).

42 out of 50, but luck was on my side in some of my guesses.

Alan, thanks for the link.

You answered 38 of 50 questions correctly for a total score of 76%.

Helps to be a civil engineering undergrad, I guess.
