Dave Davidson posted a link to this test on the SME LinkedIn Group and of course I had to take the test.
1912 8th Grade Exam
This test determined whether or not you would be permitted to attend high school back in the day.
Had I not helped my wife with the teaching duties when we home schooled, I’d have done much worse  than I did.

Surprisingly little science.

Strong on technicalities of English and Geography; the Math was smaller portion of the test than I expected, but would stymie many job seekers today.
If you can pass the math questions on this, you are probably already a pretty good machinist or engineer.
And if you miss the one about the last battle of the civil war, it’s probably because you guessed the one that wasn’t listed as a choice.
Like I did.
