Criteria Animal Species: The Sporcle Featured Quiz of the Week

panda

We think all our featured quizzes are great, but once a week we find a quiz published within the last 7 days that went the extra mile.

This week’s quiz is Criteria Animal Species by Sporcle User mic747.

About the Quizmaker

Mic747 made this week’s Featured Quiz, and it’s his 12th game to be published. He’s been on Sporcle since January 2013, and has played over 23,000 quizzes since then. He is the curator for the Blitz and Lord of the Rings subcategories, and has 163 out of 169 badges. Keep making great quizzes, mic747!

What’s the Quiz About?

Criteria Animal Species tests your knowledge about animals. There are 12 animals to choose from, with a range from walrus to hummingbird. As with all criteria quizzes, this is a minefield. At first, you’re given a list of 12 characteristics (1 for each species), and you have to click the one animal that has all those characteristics. After you click the first one, the bottom characteristic disappears. Now you have 11 characteristics and 11 animals to choose from. And so on and so forth. For this quiz, it’s very important to read all of the characteristics before beginning. With 8 minutes to complete the quiz, you have more than enough time to think through your options. Additionally, it’s not a forced order quiz, so if you’re not sure about the current question, you can skip ahead to one you do know.

Criteria Animal Species was played 49,937 times on the day it was featured, and ended up with a rating of 3.9.

The US Citizenship Test: The Sporcle Featured Quiz of the Week

citizen

We think all our featured quizzes are great, but once a week we find a quiz published within the last 7 days that went the extra mile.

This week’s quiz is the US Citizenship Test by Sporcle User Jupy.

About the Quizmaker

US Citizenship Test is Jupy’s first published quiz, and it’s the only quiz he’s made. He’s been on Sporcle since September 2013, and has gotten 13 badges since then. He’s played just over 300 games. Congrats on your first publish, Jupy!

What’s the Quiz About?

To become a citizen of the United States, you must take a test. This test asks questions about the government and history of the US. This quiz takes some of the practice questions for the test, and asks whether you’d be able to pass it. This quiz is for everyone, whether you’re not a US citizen and want to see how hard the test it, or you are already a citizen and you want to see how much you remember from US History. In the real test, you’re asked 10 questions and you must answer at least 6 of them correctly (60%). The average Sporcler got 77% of these practice questions right, so most Sporclers would pass the US Citizenship test. Would you?

US Citizenship Test: Would You Pass? was played 31,769 times while it was on the home page and got a rating of 4.7.
