70 question quiz: Can We Guess Your Highest Education Level?

Each question is on its own page, and I really hate it when they do that.

However, I really liked this quiz.

http://offbeat.topix.com/quiz/16503?...edium=referral

My results and a comment from me:

Spoiler:

"Your Score: 86% PhD Congratulations - you got your doctorate! It's clear that you've put in some solid years in grad school."

In the real world, my highest level of education is a bachelor's degree. I have never attended grad school, not even for one day.

Pretty much none of those questions have anything to do with having or getting a PhD. Getting a doctorate in a research fields - any research field, from the hard sciences to the humanities - has nothing to do with regurgitating facts about Shakespeare or mineral composition, and everything about creating new and independent research.

Re: 70 question quiz: Can We Guess Your Highest Education Level?

it's more Jeopardy than an evaluation on education level. And not even regular Jeopardy, more like Teen Tournament Jeopardy.

Re: 70 question quiz: Can We Guess Your Highest Education Level?

So common sense translates to a PhD?

Your Score: 81%
PhD
Congratulations - you got your doctorate! It's clear that you've put in some solid years in grad school.

His posts are turning into the links you find at the bottom of Yahoo after you've passed the Kardashian news.

There's education, and there's education. Do you know how to pluck a chicken?

That might be useful to know, sometime.

It has got to be more useful than knowing orders of Greek Columns.

Technically you'd be a DROPOUT, but you still passed?

Common Core.

I missed the question on metaphor/simile (and I think they were wrong) and something else I can't remember. But many of these were educated guesses.

That's weird. I intentionally answered every question incorrectly, getting a few right accidentally, and got 3% High School.

I did it twice and on the time where I was trying I got 66% PhD. Doctorates apparently have pretty low standards.

The thing to remember about the metaphor/simile thing:

If you say something IS something else: metaphor
If you say something is LIKE or AS something else: simile

Close thread. This is the problem with our public education system ... We have replaced critical thinking skills with wrote memorization which can be graded on a Scantron. Thanks standardized testing.

ABP prevented the link from even opening, so I'm leaving well enough alone.

If I wanted random clickbait I could just check my facebook wall. I"m sure I've got a dozen of these kinds of clickbait being reposted by someone just today.

They told me I was probably home-schooled and my parents had hosted several 'measles parties'.

We're ALL as educated as doctors! Don't you take that away from us!

I didn't take a 10 minute online quiz to be called "Mr.", damn it!
