And as a PR practitioner, you can find out your EQ today by taking PRSA’s new online ethics quiz. We are all obligated to abide by the PRSA Code of Ethics and this ten-question quiz is guaranteed to test your knowledge of the ethical practice of public relations.

Each question offers a brief scenario for consideration. After answering each question, you will receive an explanation and links to additional guidance on that topic. Questions cover copyright infringement, plagiarism, audio taping, disclosure of information and more.
