Did You Pay Attention In High School?

This test tells me I paid attention to 86% of high school. How well did you pay attention?

The thing that gets me is they don't tell you what questions you got wrong.

Wow, you're pretty sharp Fred. I got 80%.

86% here. What's that....about a "B"?

I don't know. I just wish they'd tell you which ones you got wrong.

I saw an old test online somewhere a while back. It was some test from [I think] a high school, or eighth grade final exam from I forget how long ago, but it was '50s or earlier. I failed that one horribly.

It was hard to believe the questions were so tough.

I got a hundred percent, but I don't know that I learned it all in high school. I probably would have gotten both religious questions wrong.

Fred, I scored the same as you. If you want to figure out which ones you got wrong -- you can. Just fill out the test, check your score, then backspace -- the answers will still be there. You can change any answer and it check your score again. If you corrected the right one your score goes up, if not it goes down. It may take some trial and error, but you can figure out exactly where you went astray.
I was mistaken in guessing that Iran is Arabic. I think I got the most popular religions one wrong too.

My wife and I went to college and I got a 74% and my wife 80%. Ouch.

if you're still taking stupid pointless tests, then you paid enough attention in high school to have achieved a habit of obedience.

extra credit question:

12 years of public schooling taught me how to:

a)live in harmony with the earth and not pollute the land, water, and air.

b)get along with the people in my community and relate to people of all ages and coming from varied backgrounds.

c)provide for my own basic needs without adding to the myriad of overwhelming social and ecological problems facing us today.

e)sit down and shut up.

That's why you're the epitome of success.

Hey Fred, I think your wife should know people have seen your pickup down by the library at 2:30am!

Ok. Let her know. That's news to me, though.

I think my score, 80%, might be a little higher than my attendance record. I was a certified Habitual Truant. The truant officer was a regular visitor to our house.

91% for me. I finished high school with a C+ average because I was one of those kids who was always either looking out the window where freedom existed or doodling. I would A's in the classes where I like the teachers which rarely happened. I got into U.C. Berkeley on tests scores after high school.

91 percent! Not bad, considering I tested out during my junior year.

I owe at least a few right answers to my art/history-buff husband, though.

I got 80%. Not bad for a H.S. drop out I suppose.
