Hello Snopes,
I recentally came across this on facebook and I had some information
that may help determine that this is indeed fake. In my professional
opinion, as a daily user of photoshop and sharp artist eye, there are a
list of things that do not add up and make me assured this document is
fake or at least parts of it are:

-"Dinosaurs: Genesis and the Gospel" do not line up with the perspective
of the paper.
-"Dinosaurs: Genesis and the Gospel" the "el" in gospel does not line up
with the crease in the paper.
- questions 2,15 though handwriting analysis: right-handed; these
questions are circled in a way that is common to only each other.
- questions 3,5 through handwriting analysis: left-handed; have similar
patterns, but are not a match to the handwriting on pg 2.
- question 4 through handwriting analysis: left-handed; unique to this
question only.

There are a few other small things mostly with perspective and layout of
the test not lining up on a few questions

Comment: The fourth grade quiz is obviously a hoax... what quiz begins
with "fourth grade quiz"? Come on... Snopes is being hoaxed and you are
losing credibility in my mind.

I don't think this should be probably true.

- The front page is not the least bit convincing.
- The second page doesn't match up with the first, in numbering, or
content.
- Questions on the second page raise doubt as they are not related to
anything.
- In your own description you note that the comprehension and other
parameters of the test are not 4th grade level.

This should be dropped in certainty. The two witness accounts don't even
make sense, and their unwillingness is unbelievable, unless they agree
with what is in the test. And if so, then why are they putting it online.

No sense is here.

Comment: You guys have really disappointed me by being so gullible as to
offer an opinion that this purportd science test is "probably true." Based
upon what? The fact that a few days after a posting on an Reddit internet
site (tagged to atheism)a reader wrote you claiming it was his daughter's
test? Wow, that was an extensive job of corroboration on your part!
Look at the test:
Why or when does a Science Teacher write 4th Grade Science Quiz as a
sub-header on a test?
Why state the grade (maybe to show how dumb it is that this stuff is being
taugh to 4th graders - and it is categorized as "Science"?
Do you think maybe the 100 AND the A+ AND the smiley sticker might just be
a little "much"?
The header refers to the Gospel. No part of the test goes anywhere near
the Gospel. That would be obvious to a person allegedly teaching this myth
as science. Maybe not so much to a non-religious person looking to make
fun of such practices.
You guys are supposed to de-bunk this stuff; not promote it.
