Submission + - Developing a computerized adaptive Geek Test (

fiziko writes: "I'm trying to develop a computerized adaptive geek test. Unlike the percentage scores on traditional geek tests, the final version will produce norm referenced "geek level" scores in a variety of geekdom's domains (Doctor Who, comics, computer science, math, physics, etc.) The framework I've developed for the initial norming seems to work well, but I'm lacking one critical piece: volume. If there's one thing Slashdot does well, it's sending large volumes of geekdom's best to the sites it links to."
