If I'm not mistaken, it was at the Varsity Commerce CLAUSE in March.

You obviously do amazing work and I do not mean to minimize your efforts, but I think a spreadsheet that allows for easy comparison between teams on the same question set/difficulty would be a nice add-on/feature. And if this already exists, I'd love to see it.
Possibly, but it's not a top priority for me.

I'm not doubting it; it's just that the posted stats for almost all of their tournaments don't have calculated PPBs that I could find, and I was trying to find information on them.
Commerce CLAUSE using the FACTS set.

No rankings this week. Hope to have new adjustments for every set next week.

I may have overlooked it, but do you have stats from Yale's BHSAT on February 10th entered?

Yeah, I think so. Fred told me the adjustment is +1.5 for now, and that matches up with one of our reported aPPBs.

Our ppb at Commerce Clause, which used the FACTS set, was skewed because the tournament used bouncebacks, which would have messed up your data.

Thanks for letting me know. I'll fix this in the next update.

I wish more than maybe one or two tournaments a year in Georgia would track stats correctly so I can feel more confident incorporating Georgian teams' results into the rankings, particularly when I'm doing more than just updating the rankings.

If you're wondering what's the plan for the rankings for the rest of the year:

1) Make sure I have all the tournaments so far, as laid out here.

2) Finish my outreach project where I mail politicians about the midseason rankings.

3) Update the rankings in the next week.

4) After that, keep them updated while calculating new adjustment values for the different sets used this year

5) Release a big pre-nationals set of rankings

6) All-World team announcements!

7) Sleep forever

I've posted finalized adjustments for sets other than ICT, SCT and this year's SSNCT which, again, are being used this weekend and will have adjustments calculated once stats come in.

I've decided to remove FST from my adjustments and from consideration for the rankings, due to a small sample size and roster issues.

I've put together a list of the top 50 teams by aPPB only on mACF events. It can be seen by Patreons here. It'll be public in a couple of days on hsqbrank.com

This post is now on the main site here.

I've completed similar list for NAQT stats, which is on Patreon here. It'll be on hsqbrank Wednesday night at 9 p.m.

I'm finishing up the final overall rankings. I have over 100 teams ranked now.

I've completed the All-World team selections. Unfortunately, this is heading straight into NSC weekend and then the run up to NASAT, when I'll be extremely busy. Basically, I'll get these out as soon as I can, but I can't promise any kind of time table.

I really liked writing the notes on each player last year; I'm going to try to do that again.

This year's teams will include 10 first team selections, including player of the year; 10 second-team selections; 10 third-team selections (for the first time ever); and 20 honorable mention selections.
