How environmentally literate are you?
Over the last decade, the National Environmental Education and Training Foundation (NEETF) in partnership with Roper Public Affairs, a major international survey firm, has been issuing reports based in survey data collected on Americans’ environmental knowledge, attitudes and behaviors.
This 17 questions quiz is relatively short and will only take about 5 minutes to complete. At the start of the quiz, there are a couple demographic questions asking for your age, sex, education level and U.S. region. When taking the quiz, please select only 1 answer per question.
Give this environmental literacy quiz a try and see how you fare!
After you take the quiz write a response in the comments section below this post and let me know what you thought. Did you find the quiz to be way too easy? What environmental questions do you think all Americans should be able to answer that were excluded from the quiz? In what ways should the NEETF modify this quiz?
UPDATE: The results of the Environmental Literacy Quiz are in (based on the first 15 respondents)! Check out how Project Blue Hope participants fared against the average American at http://projectbluehope.com/2011/02/09/the-results-of-the-environmental-literacy-quiz-are-in/.
