Test your news knowledge with the rest of America

The Pew Research Center has developed a News IQ Quiz to measure our knowledge of current events. It is a 12-question test that then lets you compare yourself to others.

It is relatively easy (at least for someone who types for a living) but the average score of about 1,000 randomly selected adults who were asked the same question was just 50 percent.

Men score higher than women, old people like me do better than younger people. And there is a correlation between education levels and scores.

Take it in the privacy of your cubicle and see how you compare.
