Pew Forum Religious Knowledge Survey

#1

Post by Rich » Fri Oct 01, 2010 12:11 pm

The Pew Forum released a survey that indicates most Americans can only answer 50% of the questions in their religious knowledge survey. I took their abbreviated survey (15 questions) and got 15/15 correct. The questions were not difficult by any means. So, I have added the complete questionnaire to a new quiz. I suspect that the visitors to this site can do much better than 50%. Try it out:

Error: This quiz has already been taken by N/A and the instructor does not allow quizzes to be taken more than once.

Same here. I thought I did pretty well. I guess I'll change my name to N/A.

13/15.

I don't know almost anything about the Eastern religions.

I'm pretty sure I did decent, not sure what score I actually got, but I certainly got more than 50%. That's pretty awful really.
