Basic test of evolution knowledge
The following quiz consists of 20 multiple-choice questions. You have 1 minute for each question and a total of 10 minutes in all to complete the quiz (this is to limit the ability of the less scrupulous to cheat). Don't worry - this is PLENTY of time.
To pass the quiz you will need a score of 15 or more. You may attempt the quiz a maximum of FIVE times.Of course you don't have to take the test, but if you want to talk to me about evolution the first question I will ask is 'did you do the test and what score did you get?'. If you haven't done it then I'll be inclined to think that you are wasting my time and, since I have very little to waste, I'll be disinclined to engage. If you HAVE done it, and scored a fail (less than 15) then fine - we all have to learn and I'll be happy to help where I can. If you pass the test then I will know that you have at least a basic grounding in evolutionary theory and, even if you want to challenge the theory, I'll be far more inclined to take any such challenge more seriously than otherwise (although I have to say that this will not be TOO seriously - the theory is extremely solid and, unless you have published something in the scientific literature, I think it is unlikely that you will have any new insights...but one never knows....)Click on the button below to take the quiz. You will be given the results when you have completed the quiz. (If you don't see the continue button, you have already completed the quiz several times and you will need to email me in order to reset your attempts)
