I want to experiment with creating a computerized adaptive test. To do that, I’m going to need statistics. LOTS of statistics. I have a first draft of five questions produced on a Google form. They are very quick, and can be completed here. More details below.

When I say “LOTS” of statistics, I mean I need a number of people getting everywhere from 0% to 100%, so please do NOT worry about “bombing” the questions. Long term plans include turning this into an advanced geek test for Bureau 42, broken down by various categories of geekdom. As a first test of Google form output quality, I put together a basic quiz with five questions from five such areas. I believe everyone will get at least one question right, but few will get all five right. Please answer as you see fit, and share this link with everybody and anybody who would be willing to help out. Ultimately, I want to not only provide our readers with another “geek” stamp, but also measure the geek interest levels in different areas of geekdom. In the long term, I plan to open things up to reader submitted questions, but only once I’m confident I have a way to screen questions for accuracy.
