Darcy Cowan at Sci Blogs has a 28 question science literacy test.
The test takes a fair while as you really have to think and comprehend some of the questions.
There were a couple of questions where I wasn’t sure about the answer because it was not a right/wrong question but a “What bext explains …” type question.
However I got 28 out of 28, which I am happy with. The full results were:
For Identifying valid scientific arguments you achieved 3 out of 3.
For Evaluating and distinguishing sources you achieved 6 out of 6
For Evaluating uses of scientific information you achieved 3 out of 3
For Evaluating research design you achieved 4 out of 4
For Making a graph you achieved 1 out of 1
For Interpreting graphical information you achieved 4 out of 4
For Quantitative problem solving you achieved 3 out of 3
For Interpreting statistics you achieved 3 out of 3
For Interpreting quantitative data you achieved 2 out of 2
