I am pleased to know that I AM smarter than a fifth grader amd I am 88 years old. But I was upset to know that my state (Louisiana) ranks 48th in education. Louisiana teachers MUST do a better job!

I bet most elected US representatives would fail this test.

Don't judge us all by your results. 14 out of 15, as I didn't know the lungs were asymmetrical.

Are there answers to this? And, how many 5th graders actually passed this? I suspect most of them passed since most of this is 3rd grade material except for the math.

Maybe not as smart as a 5th grader but I am smarter than many high school graduates who can barely read their diploma and cannot add without a calculator, need help in filling out a job application.

I'll admit it...I got 12 out of 15.

I didn't READ #1 closely enough.
I have no idea that lungs aren't the same size.
And I suck at fractions.

Dunce cap for me!

I got 14/15 correct. But then I am only 70 years old so I guess there is still more to learn. (How many people have memorized that there are 215 bones in the human body?) I think it is more important to know that the Constitution requires the US Congress issue a declaration of war before the US can go to war with anybody. But, surprise, surprise, surprise, our own government has NEVER declared war on anybody since 1941. What am I missing?????

May not be as smart as 'a' 5th grader but I am smarter than a lot of high school graduates who can barely read their diplomas, cannot add without a calculator, need help in filling out a job application.
