Anyone know why the Club Challenge percentiles have changed? [#permalink] New post 13 Feb 2008, 08:06
I'm seeing some weird stuff with the percentiles in some of my recent tests when I compare them to percentiles in the comparison thread. 8-t30989&start=0 <-- comparison thread

Test 15
Score/Percentile

20/77 %-tile
16/63

Whereas I got a 22, but was 50 percentile

Test 17
28/93 %-tile
20/63
23/80

Whereas I got a 28, but was 43 percentile

Test 18
26/87 %-tile
26/86
28/91

Whereas I got a 28, but was 60 percentile

I know it doesn't really make any difference, I got wrong what I got wrong, I'm just rather curious. Are people just doing THAT much better since the original percentiles were given out? A score that would have been a 91 percentile, but is now a 60 percentile is pretty crazy!

well I think some people try second chance and answer questions much better than they did it previously, so if he got 55% first time and 95 second time, so relative to their results yours goes down. probably that might be one of the explanations.
