What do you know about American History?

The Nation’s Report Card: U.S. History 2010 was released June 14th. There has been a little improvement in the overall scores since the program began in 1994, with the lowest performing 4th graders improving the most. Unfortunately, though, 55% of high school seniors still do not meet the "Basic" level of understanding our nation's history.

Sound dire? Could you do better? Here's some sample questions from previous NAEP history assessments.

Good luck!
