These are quizzes made available on line by Pew Research. They are 13 and 15 question quizzes.

Science:
http://www.pewresearch.org/quiz/science-knowledge/

Religion:
http://features.pewforum.org/quiz/us-religious-knowledge/

Results (they discuss the questions... don't read this first, unless you're a cheater):
science - http://www.people-press.org/2013/04/22/publics-knowledge-of-science-and-technology/1/

Religion - http://www.pewforum.org/U-S-Religious-Knowledge-Survey.aspx

I got 13/13 on science, but only 10/15 on religion. I mixed up Hinduism, Budism, and Taoism in some places, and couldn't remember the question about the Great Awakening. Oh and for some reason I got the question about the Sabbath wrong - I had a jewish team mate when I wrestled and he had to miss some matches because of that, what I had forgotten was what days he had to miss.

edit: I had to edit my post because I realized I gave away some answers :\

edit: to be clear the results analyzed are not from online test takers. these were real surveys conducted a few years ago, they've just made the quizzes available online to show them.

Yeah, taking stupid little quizzes like that (where the questions are mostly easy in terms of the topic they're asking about) makes you realize how little you might know about something.

In my case, how ignorant I am of Hinduism, Budism, and Taoism :)

I took a world religions class so I have no excuse :(

15/15 on religion. 12/13 on science. Missed the one on chemical reaction - made a guess. Everything else seemed easy to me. All these years of attending church/Sunday school paid off. Spending some extra time studying science - not so much.

11/13 in science. No clue what fracking was.
15/15 in religion, though two of those were educated guesses.

12/13 in science

15/15 religion

Being somewhat of a science geek the missed question was disappointing (ultraviolet/infrared)

I have no beliefs that could be categorized as religious although I have and do study it as a component of human psychology and the evolution of human societies and civilizations.
