Could You Pass This Eighth Grade Test From 1912?
Are you smarter than an 8th grader? How about an 8th grader 100 years ago? I have to admit, after seeing this test from 1912, I sure am glad to have graduated from school when I did, because, I'm not sure I could have made it past 8th grade back then.
I'm sure we've all at some time in our "school careers" taken tests that we thought were incredibly hard.
This is an 8th grade test from Bullitt County Schools 8th grade class in Bullitt County Kentucky. The Bullitt County Museum put together the test along with an answer sheet for the examination so people could see just how hard tests were back then at this particular public school. Go ahead click on the button bar below to take the test and see how you would have fared way back at the turn of the last century.
And just like back in 1912, no cheating.
