How Well Do You Know the Constitution?

24 Questions

Everybody talks about the Constitution, but it seems that few people have actually read that short document. How well do you know it?

Note: this is one of the most difficult of the online tests, but you need only a 50% score to pass.  While some of the questions may seem tricky or obscure, they're all directly based on the Constitution--a short, easily read document.  If you don't like your score, read the Constitution and take the test again!

Oh, and one hint before you take it:  Amendments to the Constitution become part of the Constitution after they're ratified.  (Some test takers have complained that I refer to the Constitution when I really mean just an Amendment. But an amended Constitution IS the Constitution. The Founders said so, in Article V of the Constitution.)
