NovaQuiz High Scores Thread

Post by Megatron on Mon Dec 25, 2017 10:45 pm

Since @Connor created a list of LQ High Score achievers, I've decided to create one for the original gangster NovaQuiz. Below lists the perfect scorers, as well as the honorable mentions (people that scored 1500+ because that's pretty damn close.)

*Perfect Scores*
@Alex
@Megatron
@Paradox
@Exodus
@Cyborg

*Honorable Mentions*
@Stanley: 1515
@test: 1515
@Charles: 1510
@Columbia: 1510
@Intehlek: 1505
@Free: 1505
@Riley:1500
@Element 7: 1500

To clarify, I've technically scored a 1520 after initially receiving that 1515, but since it sounds to 1517.5, they rounded it down.

That brings up another good point. Who are some people that scored high that you never thought would?

You.
Kidding, but there are a few 1400s people that really surprised me.
@Responsibility with a 1410, I don't even really know the person. They have 1 post.
@Malachi with a 1455, who??

Sorry, but not really. A high score would be anywhere in the 90th percentile and up.

And who are you to make that distinction? A good score is any score about 1200, if we're being brutally honest. Remember, we're talking about a GOOD score, not a Honor qualifier.

Well, don't you think a good score would be the cut off for the honorary groups? It's not like they pulled the numbers out of thin air.

1250 + Is good
1350 + Is honorary material (20 point off from the cutoff)
1450 + is exceptional

Mean Distribution of first 20 twenty IDS from Supernova:
NR = Not Recorded
/u1 - OnyxTech (NR)
/u2 - Alex - 1520
/u3 - Connor - 1490
/u4 - Raymond (NR)
/u5 - Worfox (NR)
/u6 - Jessica [JayJay370] - 1440
/u7 - I.N (NR)
/u8 - iMag - 1495
/u9 - James (NR)
/u10 - Lunick - 1270
/u11 - Danny - 1390
/u12 - Latin - 1460
/u13 - Stanley - 1515
/u14 - Gravity - 1430
/u15 - Chaos (NR)
/u16 - CySource (NR)
/u17 - Cyber - 1220
/u18 - Mike (NR)
/u19 - 3Way - 1475
/u20 - Matt (NR)

9 No-Records
Low: 1220
High: 1520
Range: 300
Mean: 1427.72727273 eqiv. 1430

Simply put, if you want to have a "good score" you need to have roughly around this score because the majority of these people played a hand in creating the assessment.
Good score: 1430+

This isn't a good estimate. There were an awful lot of 'no-records', and the representation of these scores are skewed because, like you said, these are the people who made it. Also, the mean you gave is the middle 50, so shouldn't you take into account the bottom 25 and the upper 75?
Bottom 25% (Quartile 1) - 1390
Middle 50% (Quartile 2) - 1430
Upper 25% (Quartile 3) - 1515
IQR - 125

So, after all of that we're back to what @Malachi said, 90 percentile or higher, but it's still pointless because the scores are skewed
1390 is the 91st percentile.
Anywhere from 1390 to 1520 is a good score, based off of highly skewed scores.

I did the same approach as @Dave, except I used all numbers ranging from 760 (50% mark) and 1520 (100% mark, perfect score.)
The results:
Q1: 949.5 ~ 950
Q3: 1330.5 ~ 1330

With the mean (Q2) being - 1140
Essentially, I've came to the conclusion that 1140 or higher is a good score.
