Just 11 percent of investors scored an 'A' on an eight-question investment literacy quiz, according to a new survey.

John Hancock discloses this finding in an Investor Sentiment Survey that polled 1,078 investors about their views of the current economic climate and what represents a good or bad investment given market conditions. Conducted by independent research firm Greenwald & Associates, the poll also asked consumers about their confidence in reaching key financial goals and likelihood of purchasing financial products and services.
