Our next geek test is ready. This one is a 40 question combined novel and movie test. The test can be found at http://bit.ly/v3Gxle. As usual, please complete the test only once, and share with friends.
The next two Bureau 42 Geek tests are ready, looking at Marvel (http://bit.ly/shJs5i) and DC (http://bit.ly/s2qUO9) comics specifically. Please complete, and by all means, share! As always, using the unique identifiers will help me out. I plan to have 8-10 initial geek test categories, and I will then try to model results on all of them combined. This would be much, much easier if I could connect responses on one test with another. Also, as always, please complete each test only once and to the best of your ability.
Sufficient statistics are in to start a full scale analysis of the Star Trek quiz. (The Babylon 5 quiz needs to be extended with more difficult questions before that can be effectively analyzed.) Details follow.
The statistics are still accumulating on our Babylon 5 test, but that’s no reason to stop now. Our Star Trek: The Original Series test, restricted exclusively to canonical adventures (pre-2009 relaunch), can be found at http://bit.ly/vE8l2z. Please take the test once only, make your best effort, and give yourself the same user name / e-mail address / unique string you used on prior tests (assuming you volunteer such a label in the first place.)
The development of Bureau 42’s Geek Test continues. This time around, site founder Dave created 20 questions to challenge and norm our readers. You can take the test at http://bit.ly/rE14oC. Please do the test once only, and give it your best effort. Come back next week for a similar test for Star Trek: The Original Series. Feel free to share the link! We’ll need a lot more respondents this time around; Part A had 32 possible response patterns, while this part has 1048576, and we need to see the way those patterns appear when people are trying their hardest.
I would like to thank everybody who participated in the first part of the Geek Test here at Bureau 42. I got exactly the kind of data I was looking for FAR faster than I’d hoped. I’m excited about where this is going. Complete details are after the break.
