Presentation Abstract

In my paper 'Statistical Literacy - Statistics Long After School' presented at ICOTS-5 in Singapore, I discussed creating a course 'Citizens Statistics 101' and suggested what topics should be included in such a course. Unfortunately, the project has not happened, but I continue to think about it and present in this paper a practice exam that illustrates its content. The bottom line hope is that someday there will be no need for such a course as students will learn the statistics in school that will enable them to be statistically literate citizens.
