Go back to school with a history test

    Most of the folks who tested their eighth grade history skills last month with the Daily Constitution proved proficient.

    But now it’s time to head back to class and that National Assessment of Educational Progress tests students all the way through 12th grade. Think you’ve got what it takes to get through a high school history class?

    The Daily Constitution has 10 questions ready for you. Here’s the first:

    Maryland was among the first colonies grant…

    A. legal rights to American Indians

    B. religious toleration to all Christians

    C. the right of all colonists to own slaves

    D. full political rights to  all free black people

    Because this isn’t a high school classroom, we’re not sneaking you the answer. You’ll have to take the quiz to see how much you know.
