Answer the multiple choice questions, guessing if necessary; then click on the "Process Questions" button to see your score. The program will not reveal which questions you got wrong, only how many points you have. Go back and change your answers until you get them all right. (The message box will rejoice at that point and the page will change color in delight.)
Points to note:
(1) Questions with only one possible answer are one point each.
(2) Questions with one or more possible answers (represented by check boxes)
give a point for each correct answer, but also subtract a point for each wrong answer!
(3) The program will not attempt to score your efforts at all if you have not tried at least half of the questions.
(4) This quiz is for your own use only. No record of your progress is kept or reported to anyone.
This quiz is adapted from Barbara Yost's "Yuletide Knowledge Test," which appeared in Arizona Republic in about 1996 or 1997 and was reprinted in the San Diego Union Tribune in December, 1997.
This consummately cool, pedagogically compelling, self-correcting,
multiple-choice quiz was produced automatically from
a simple text file of questions using D.K. Jordan's
dubiously original, but publicly accessible
