    95% here as well. I'm a natural born citizen, so where would I have learned what form was needed to become naturalized.

    90%, though I did guess on a couple. I would make a good citizen!

    The Declaration was adopted July 2nd and signed on July 4, 1776, right? The question is "iffy"

    100%, but I guessed on the immigration form. Please tell me the real test is more difficult than this?

    80% is passing from what I'm reading on the test link.

    85% for me....still good enough to retain my citizenship...but not as good as I'd like it to be. Time to do a little reading.

    One more for missing the form question. The rest were easy. Learned those in elementary school (when teachers were actually still teaching a little US history, now it is all "I think, I feel..."). Of course how I retained that I will never know. Probably all of the paddlings made it stick.

    When my family came to America, there were no forms or state or federal governments to create forms. You got off the boat, found a good place to live, beat off the Natives and the damn French, and made the best of it. You didn't work, you didn't live.

    95% here. Sort of embarressed that I missed the question concerning amendments that touched on voting rights. Off to reread the constitution!

    I taught a couple of polisci courses as an adjunct instructor for a college last year, and it was saddening to see how little knowledge the students possessed concerning the government and history of the United States.

    I taught a couple of intro courses for non-majors for a couple of years at a University in Georgia. I was appalled at the lack of basic abilities and knowledge displayed by many of my students. I actually had a couple that could not read or write at 3rd grade level.

    Simple concepts that I learned in elementary school were foreign to these students. (I went to the school my father and my grandmother went to in a tiny little town in S AL. We didn't have AC until I was in 7th grade. So nothing fancy about my schooling.)

    I gave up on essay questions on tests as I didn't have time to teach basic grammar and sentence structure in a polisci class. It was disheartening.
