Do you know more about the news than the average American?

What do you know about the news?

Test your knowledge of prominent people and major events in the news, by taking our short 13-question quiz. Then see how you did in comparison with 1,041 randomly sampled adults asked the same questions in a national survey conducted online Jan. 18-24 by the Pew Research Center. The new survey includes a mixture of multiple-choice questions using photographs, maps and symbols.

When you finish, you will be able to compare your News IQ with the average American, as well as with the scores of college graduates and those who didn’t attend college; with men and women; and with people your age as well as other ages.

I'm proud to say I got 13 out of 13!

12 out of 13. Didn't recognize John Boehner's photo. That's what happens when you rarely watch TV these days, haha.

11 out of 13 but this quiz would have been even more fun if it hadn't been mostly about American politics which I vehemently tune out everytime their talking heads come on TV.

Now do one about Canada and see how well we do?

Aced it. Usually I screw up on at least one, but this was just so easy for a blog fan.

You answered 11 of 13 questions correctly along with 13% of responders.

I got the Kerry question wrong (I really had no idea Kerry was appointed) and the same sex marriage question (thought it Washington passed the legislation earlier than 2012).
