Here's my score (image not loading, I know):
I think that should read "Congratulations! You are a speaker of a privileged dialect and have a good memory for arbitrary writing conventions!"
My favorite part of the quiz? The idea that knowing the abbreviation of the plural form of "mister" has something to do with grammar.

Update: there is now a lucid discussion at LanguageLog regarding this quiz, in case you're wondering what's so bad about elitist, obsolete prescriptivism.
