Re: Prediction Contest 2019

At least one partner was sick for all of the events (except 2). Also for sounds, one of the calculators died, so the two people were sharing one calculator on a test that I heard was almost all math. Boom and wright stuff just went wrong, and mousetrap and mission were both unfortunate, too (see my ...

Re: Nationals Event Discussion

Mission Possible (14): RIP. If we had not screwed up, we would have comfortably won (though I will not say by how much). Our start task ended up being a touch, which cost us 125 points. Also, we did not read the rules carefully enough, and so our pulley was powered by a battery (which cost us a ton ...

Re: Swap Meet

jimmy-bond: I'll get you some D-Rose stuff for the Aloha shirt, but I'd also need some more than that (D-Rose stuff is not cheap lol). What do you want and what else do you have to offer? CrazyChemist: Wanna do a Yankees cap for a Vikings cap? I have one that's basically brand new from Lids, so mayb...

Re: Swap Meet

TheCrazyChemist: I can get you Vikings merch for some Yankees stuff. What do you have? jimmy-bond: I do have an old-fashioned Butler jersey (but he left) that has only been worn once, but if you really want D-Rose stuff, I can get some. It'd be pretty cool to get an aloha shirt and/or some poke (I'v...

Re: Swap Meet

When everybody complains about not having anything, but then you live in freaking Minnesota... I'm interested in t-shirts, stickers, and keychains (in that order) of pretty much anything unique, anywhere from school/state SO t-shirts all the way to random museums or things your state are known for. ...

Re: National Test Discussion

Chalker, is there ever any discussion of removing or refining events if they consistently show a poor correlation with team scores? If WIDI is so variable and a poor predictor of team outcome, why has its grading/scope not been better standardized or controlled? No there isn't. There are bigger fac...

Max event correlation: 0.52 Average event correlation: 0.39 Standard deviation: 0.09 Min event correlation: 0.20 Ecology had a correlation coefficient of 0.28. This means it was about 1 standard deviation below the average correlation for events. There were several events with lower correlations. I...
