The 2021 Purity Test: Work From Home Edition

Take a break from doing high-stakes schoolwork and quizzes on your computer and take this low-stakes quiz instead.

Welcome to the 2021 Purity Test. This past year has been referred to as “unprecedented times,” but there is one thing that remains constant: the purity, or rather, impurity, of our campus and broader Edmonton community. Has social distancing, online learning, and work from home orders purified you? Or has it brought out “unprecedented” sides of your soul? Take the test to find out.

Questions are framed as “Have you ever…?” Check off the box if you have done the activity and total your score to find out exactly how pure (or impure) you are!
