Questionable math and scoring. I missed 4. The score assigned was 65%. However getting 17 out of 21 right gives a score of 80.95. There were some scores reported that are impossible to achive. Did a little math and discovered the following.

20 of 21 is 95.24%
19 of 21 = 90.48%
18 of 21 = 85.71%
17 of 21 = 80.95%
16 of 21 = 76.19%
15 of 21 = 71.43%
14 of 21 = 66.67%
13 of 21 = 61.9%
12 of 21 = 57.14%
11 of 21 = 52.38%
10 of 21 = 47.62%

Chris there is no way to round any score to get 82% which you reported as your score. Nor is there anyway to round to get the 65% that was given as my score. RSSZ's wife got 81% which is a real score which is accomplished by getting 17 right. How many do you have to get to get 82%? Lots of people reported scoring 75%. So how many right answers out of 21 does it require to get 75%? I think the test just assigns a score sort of close to what you should have. Although I don't understand a 65 when I missed 4 questions.:confused:

I was too lazy to do the math George but yeah - something seemed a bit odd. I am thinking my score should have been based on at worst 18/21 so that would have been 86% (rounding up). I still reckon I got 19/21 in fact.

Seems very arbitrary - maybe the math coding within that test was very iffy - sure was not reflecting true percentile results it seems. Oh well - all supposed to be in fun I guess and - my guns go bang when I pull the trigger, that's way more important :18:

I missed 19 and 20. Oh well. Two weapons I'm not all that familiar with. SA80 just because I've only seen them on TV and the Desert Eagle because I don't give a crap about the Desert Eagle. If I want a magnum I'll get a Smith or a Ruger.

All I got wrong was the .40 one (and I'll be honest and say I guessed on the Glock part count question) ... and that question has been argued hundreds of times on the net.

I said "about the same" because the track record of both 9mm and .40 is actually about the same (keep in mind that there's almost a century of data on the 9x19).

They might have made some questions worth more than others, Easy worth less
Hard worth more.

Just a thought.

I got a 75, same as a couple of others.

They could have done that, but could they then provide a score that is expressed as a percentage of right answers. The score page indicates that you scored 75%. If the answers are weighted then you would have a numerical score not a percentage score. The score would have been expressed as a number like 75 points. The score derived by adding up all the values of the right answers you gave or by subtracting the value of the answers you missed from 100. Either way to give a score that is expressed in percentage and not explain that there are variable worths to the questions is misleading at the least.

I got a very low score :rolleyes:
i do not know a thing about various foreign made military rifles. and who knew glocks had so many parts?- they look like one big part!
why don't they ask questions about 19th century English shotguns?? Now that I know something about. What sort of action in a Dickson, and what is its continental designation? What are detonators? Why do LC Smith collectors buy a curious looking hand tool? Who made the aluminum cased 14 gauge shotshells, and what gun are they made for? But no, they didnt ask any of that sort of thing.
Yuck.
God Bless
