Test your science literacy

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

If you do the quiz, post your scores below. Note it is a beta and Darcy is after feedback which can be made on the site linked to.
