Surprising Meta-Lesson learned from quiz percentages analysis: Abe Lincoln was wrong.
Take for example the brutal puzzler known as the Surveillance Tech Integrator Quiz. This hair-puller stumped me more than once, and as an average our collective score was a below an F-, at 47.8%. Which means taken as a whole we gave more wrong answers than right ones. Certainly room for improvement. But what would you guess our grade would have been if we had answered 'audience lifeline' style, on each question taking the answer that was the most chosen one among us? That's right A+ 100%. Which is shocking, to me at least.
And should make you think twice next time you are sure that
you know more than everybody else, you may even be right!, but
Everybody (together) certainly knows more than you...
Abe said you can't fool all of the people all of the time. Turns out at IPVM at least you can't even fool most of the people most of the time.
Note to admin: Totalling the percentages of all the correct answers and dividing by the number of questions yields 54%, not 48%, I think. Is this because of rounding to integers in the percentages?
