I scored the same. One of the t/f questions I answered wrongly by mistake.

15/25 on just the constitution, yeah I'd be pissed.

15/25 on a test about the constitution and history, some of which I never have heard anything about, others which I learned about some 20 years ago? Meh.

What was that shit towards the end? Seriously...the last 10 or so questions didn't seem in place...

I don't remember how the Progressive party started and whether or not they were outward about hating the Constitution...Was doing well up until that point

That true false one up front - about equality - and then the questions that has nothing to do with the Constitution - had me simply decide not to take the test

Half of them weren't really relevant to the constitution.

I wanted to test myself on the Constitution.

It was false advertisement.

I already know I am not well versed on the Northwest Ordinance, or the 19th century progressivist movement.

Also, based on the loaded question about equality - I feared I saw where the rest was going.

OK, I took it. I got 19.

I was pleasantly surprised the true/false one was not loaded. I guess I had my guard up for no reason.

BS on the Declaration announcing the Formation of the "United States." It announced free and independent states. It used the term, but only in the sense they were united in opposition... seems like semantic bullshit to me.
Link Posted: 2/16/2012 8:11:13 AM EDT
20/25. Disagreed on one of them. Specifically #6.

I'm ok with a weak central government. I'd much prefer that to what we have today.

Yeah, I actually waffled on that one, for the same reasons.

18/25 - seems to be a pretty common score. Perhaps I'll go look up the Northwest Ordinance.
Link Posted: 2/16/2012 8:49:53 AM EDT
24/25 but I guessed at the Northwest Ordinance question so it should really be only 23. I've never read that document before.

That's a poorly written test.

I didn't finish it after reading some of the questions, so no score for me. When I had a test like that in college I'd take it to the instructor and make them state the question clearly. There's no "best" answer on multiple choice questions if there are contexts which allow for more than one answer to be correct. Also, the answers are either true OR false. They cannot be both true AND false.
