Taimar has written a really tough one!!

The Kings of Rohan

Anyone who scores over 60% without the books knows WAY TOO MUCH!

Good Luck!

Re: Kings of Rohan Quiz

Two very fun quizzes in one day! <img src=biggrin.gif ALT=""> Suffice it to say that I did a little better on the Bilbo quiz than on the Rohirrim.

YES! YES!
70% Kings of Rohan!
Without the books!
The first quiz ever in which my performance was really good!
And not only lucky guessing!

Re: Kings of Rohan Quiz

I got 50% without the books. Hey, I have an idea. How about you rank the quizzes. Give them &quot;easy, medium easy, medium, medium hard, hard, exceedingly difficult&quot; or similar rankings. Or have people vote on the difficulty level.

Re: Kings of Rohan Quiz

That's a decent idea.... I'll have to think how I would do it though... any ideas?

Well the easiest thing to do is just rank them yourself based on your judgment. Or you could have people email you the ranking they think the quiz deserves, or to limit your involvement you could probably set up a little voting thing on each quiz page.

As admin, do you know what people score without them self-reporting? (Does the board retain scores?) If so, the obvious thing would be to index them based on participant scores. Of course then you would have to wait until a certain number of people had taken it to achieve a baseline sample. But I'd say that Ben's idea, of trusting your own judgment, is far more practical than anything else.

Or you could rate them on a 1 to 5 scale based on difficulty. For example, the Bilbo quiz could be a 1 or 2, while Kings of Rohan would be 5 <img src=tongue.gif ALT=":b"> .
