Financial Literacy Survey
In alternating years, the Jump$tart Coalition surveys high school 12th grade students to test their knowledge of personal finance and get a better understanding of their experience with, and attitudes about, managing money. The survey was introduced in 1997 and has been conducted biennially since 2000.
