Good point.  In my long-ago life as a social science grad student, I 
learned about the importance of "validating" surveys and other assessment 
instruments to make sure that they measure what they are asserted to 
measure.  It would be interesting to see ...

a) how well the typical denizen of xml-dev would do on the test without 
cramming ...
b) how well a well-trained / experienced software developer would do after 
reading one good book on XML ...
c) how well an untrained but web-literate person (e.g., someone who can 
fool around with HTML) would do after reading a good book on XML.
