In addition, you are provided literature about the United States, what it stands for, how everything works and why the country is the way it is. Upon completing the test and taking the oath (either in the office or at a ceremony) you are provided with a letter from the president, a citizenship guide and your certificate of citizenship (the letter and guide are in my avatar).
Trust me, the process is very long, very thorough and fairly expensive. As you say, most immigrants know what the American dream is before coming here, because it's everything we can't have in our countries of origin. The test may or may not get at what it means to be American, but the process reinforces it at every stage.

I also got a 70% but have been out 44 years.
I did the quiz, but it's not giving me a score. What am I doing wrong?
