Quiz for Citizen Journalists

Citizen journalism requires an understanding of the ethical questions that all journalists must consider. The questions here give only an introduction to them, but they are ones that all journalists, including citizen journalists, should be able to answer.

Your score in no way precludes you from writing... for there is not, nor can there be, a "test" for journalism. This is for you alone, so that you can judge for yourself whether you are ready to partake fully in journalistic endeavors.
