I concur!

You mean the following:

Every time I see a math problem it looks like this: If I have 10 ice cubes, and you have 11 apples, how many pancakes will fit on the roof? Answer – Purple, because aliens don’t wear hats.

How sad is it, that everyone who took this test scores higher than the politicians do? Even the folks who DON'T LIVE HERE tested higher...

Sweet Fancy Moses with a derpy donkey... That's more than just really sad.

I took the test and scored 66.67%. I think the average ATS member would score higher on this test than most people. Some of those questions' answers were tricky! What does that say if most college graduates only score 55% on this? A little disturbing... Thanks for the post.


Reread it you scored better than the average professor. Rock on

78.79%.

I blew the international trade question by outright misreading the answer but the others I flubbed fair and square. Ahh well... It was a bit tougher than I expected it would be. A few kinda looked like more than one answer might fit until seeing it marked wrong and reading it back in that context. Naww... only one answer worked and I didn't pick it in those cases.

Nice thread! S/F

Mine was 63.64%. I was shocked myself. I remembered learning most of the questions/answers when I was in school... But school was a really long time ago.

ETA - I didn't know we could use excuses!! I blame mine on the 6 Tylenol PM I took about an hour ago.


Teasing. Even with that, I did better than I assumed I would.


I would have done better if it wasn't for George Bush...

You still did better than college professors on average..

I tried it, I'm from Canada as well, some of the questions were tricky, so I got 4 wrong, none of the financial questions...

Thanks but really everyone has done way better than most people on the street. I think ATS not only educates but attracts above average folks. Now if I could just get my head through this door.

Literally lol... Bush indeed. That's the best excuse of all. I should have used that one first. Since I have posted the lowest score, I am almost willing to bet that this test is racist in some way or another.



At least I did better than average. My daughter brought home a C last year and when I asked her why, she said that it wasn't that big of a deal because a C was average. I asked her if she had any idea how below average, average was these days.

She will be ok she comes from good stock.


The average when I was in high school was much different.
If had to go by high school, I should be sleeping on the streets.

If *that's* not the most intelligent response to the one question that wasn't on that survey ...

You answered 27 out of 33 correctly — 81.82 %

I honestly misread three of them. I should have paid more attention then again I wasn't absolutely sure about a few of them either that I did get right.

Now if they had asked me these questions over the phone I probably would have missed a few more because that survey gets boring.
