Facts?

I took the quiz. I'm curious what the actual study looked like, since with the quiz I think the real stumbling block may not be the definition between factual statements and opinion statements, but whether or not people are in the habit of reading directions.

The URL for the full report is http://www.journalism.org/2018/06/18/distinguishing-between-factual-and-opinion-statements-in-the-news/ . It includes a table of contents on the right-hand side with links to methodology and appendices.
