New Teaching Tool From the Pew Research Center: Political Typology Quiz (Community Version)

The Pew Research Center has announced a new, community version of the 2014 Political Typology Quiz!

"Go beyond red vs blue:
The Pew Research Center’s Political Typology sorts voters into cohesive groups based on their political attitudes and values – not partisan labels. Are you a Steadfast Conservative? A Solid Liberal? Or somewhere in between? What about your students, your civic group or your Facebook friends? Find out how your group compares with the nation as a whole with the community version of the Political Typology quiz.

Engage your students:
Educators have often used the Political Typology, and its accompanying online quiz, as a teaching tool in high school and college classes about American government and politics, as well as social studies and research methods. With the “community version” of the Political Typology quiz, students can learn how their political views compare with those of each other – and the rest of the country, based on results from our national survey.  You can invite your students or group members to participate by creating a group and then sharing a unique URL.

Get started:
