1912 Eighth Grade Examination [Pic]



This copy of the Eighth Grade Exam for Bullitt County Schools in 1912 was donated to the Bullitt County History Museum. Obviously it tested some things that were more relevant at that time than now.

Note that there are several typesetting mistakes on the test including a mistake in the spelling list. The word "eneeavor" should be "endeavor."



For Question #5

An interesting look at education 101 years ago. Could you pass it? Answers provided in the credits link below.

So we measure intelligence by the ability to memorize and then forget everything a couple of years later? We have an educational system that is a competition for the best grade, with no actual focus on enriching the kids.

An idiot like Obama got elected twice because he's less of an idiot than the candidates selected by the Republican Party.

I think endeavor is misspelled in the spelling part.

I guess it goes without saying, but the vast majority of eighth graders today could not pass this.
