    I wouldn't be surprised if most readers here can beat the 55% mark – I got 93.94 % myself, missing two questions.

  2. IamaproudAmerican says:

    I got an 85% without finishing college, so I don't understand why a college educator only averaged 55%.

    Fumbled at the goal line. Missed the last one! 32 out of 33. I'd be ashamed of my kid's high school home room teacher if she only got a 55, let alone a college prof.

  4. Yes, I am sure most reader's here would get a much higher than average score. I got a 96.96% missing only the Puritan question.

  5. Virgil_Hilts says:

    Just took the test…same score as you….missed 2 questions only.

  6. I got 73% and didn't even go to college.

  7. Phillip the Bruce says:

    I missed the same one re: Government expenditures = Tax Revenues. I forgot to allow for the possibility of government borrowing money even in that eventuality.
    I have several college credits, but nowhere close to a degree. Of course I learned most of this in high school, back in the late 60's.

  8. 28 out of 33; 84.85 %; and I'm Australian!
