Parliament... it shouldn't be a mystery. Test yourself in this quiz and unravel what goes on in the Westminster Parliament.
What role does Parliament have in our democracy? How does Parliament provide a check on the work of the government? How are laws made? And how can you get involved?
Produced by Parliament's Education Service, this app is great for older students and teachers learning and teaching about politics, Parliament and democracy. It aims to demystify Parliament, and will be useful for anyone with an interest in testing and improving their political literacy.
The quiz features nearly 100 multiple-choice questions grouped into five topics:
- Parliament explained
- Making laws
- Democracy at work
- Citizenship in action
- Holding to account
- Choose how many questions to answer.
- Feedback for each answer is given at the end of the quiz.
- Practice answering the questions through the 'topics' menu, and then use the 'challenge' menu to test yourself against the clock.
- Track how you're doing with the 'progress meter'.
- Find your local MP and constituency based on your current location or postcode.
ParliQuiz is produced by the UK Parliament and is free to download. It is part of a trial of new mobile applications aiming to broaden access to, improve understanding of and increase participation with Parliament.
Good start, but fairly limited app
Quite a good time waster, but only a limited number of easy questions, could do with more sections, and more facts
