Its an excellent spreadsheet. It just sucks these variables are not really accurate whatso ever due to not knowing which 30 are throw outs.

If this was a standard 100 q exam it would be absolutely fantastic.

Kevin,

 

These types of things end up being pretty damn accurate.  The extra questions throws a monkey wrench in and makes it less so.

Hey guys, sorry in advance if this has already been asked. But in regards to the spreadsheet, how do you interpret "possible doubles" I have "total", 4, "have one" 2.

 Currently there are 4 out of the 130 where 2 of the answers are getting almost all the votes (for lack of a better term).

You have one of those two possibles on two of the questions.

example....

30 answer keys entered, questions 1,2,3, and 4 all have 15 votes for A and 15 votes for B and you have either A or B for #1 and 2, but don't have either of them in 3 and 4.

Its as close as it gets. Without knowing which 30 answers are tossed.. its not really accurate. But it is as accurate as it can be and will be for time being.

This exam is very difficult to predict our scores.

To answer the common questions:

1) If your worst is above 70, I would take that as a guarantee that you passed. Your Most Likely is probably going to be pretty close to what you get (before throwouts).
2) If you haven't sent me your key and want to, send it via PM to me here, or via email at support@ottrack.com. If you need your results, due to not having Excel, it not working for you, etc., make sure to let me know and I will respond with it.


I probably won't get to any more tonight, but I'll pick it up again tomorrow.

My best is 82, likely 63, worst 50.

I am a little nervous but I will be ok once we know which 30 are tossed. Until then, itspeculation deal of up in the air speculation.

Best Possible 100
Most Likely 78
Worst Possible 70

Gambor, I PM'd you my answers.

Honestly, I don't know what to make of this test. I studied my ass off for 2 months @ 3-5 hours a day, then last 2 months @ 5-8 hours a day, and the week of the test, I had vacation so I studied 10-12 hours a day. Let me tell you, I rushed through this test like crazy. I barely had time to eliminate any answers and I was constantly checking on my watch right up until the end.

Many cops in my room didn't even finish and 1 poor girl studied real hard and answered only 100 not realizing that there were more questions after. I had no time for review and I did the in-basket last so I rushed it and got 6 wrong on it alone. I cannot believe that DCAS didn't allow us more time since they added an additional 30 questions.

Honestly, I think this test was setup to get as few cops on the list as possible. They still have a lot on the 2011 list and they can't have another 1000+ list to siphon through.

 anything under 70 for worst...means no guarantees...your best should be around 95-100

According to his sheet 24 different out of 130. Some that were moderate confidence but still not bad. Hopefully some of those wrong ones are the research one

Now I have a most likely 80, and a worst possible 73. It started originally off of verison one with a most likely 78 and a worst possible 65. First rounds on me after the protest if this thing is accurate.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I enter in my sheet and it won't tally up the 3 outcomes for me.  I get a bunch of error messages when I open it up so it's probably something on my end.

Anyway I got 23 wrong 10 of which are moderate/low, with another 12 answers right that are at moderate and low

 

So I don't know how to do the math but I'm guessing the program would do a best of 100 and a low of 65?

Also on one question I was one of a few who had a different answer than most others so according to the key everyone was using most got it right and I got it wrong. Ended up I was right and most was wrong. Just saying simply bc majority got it right doesn't always make it so.


 I used the spreadsheet for the last Lt exam (it's great by the way). My score with the preliminary key was off by 2, but with the final key I wound up getting 9 points higher. With a good number of answer keys, it's should be close to accurate, give or take 10 points.

Very useful stuff. When it's done right like this it's always 90-100 % correct. 

 

i remember we did this back in 2011 and we got 99/100 questions correct. this is a great tool to compare your questions and get a nice idea on how u did.

Wow, I woke up this morning to a massive amount of keys and requests. I did as many as I could but apparently I can't take an eday to sit at my computer all day and type in abacadaba. :)

I sent responses to those that I got to and will do more this afternoon. If you asked me for your results, be patient and I will definitely get back to you today. I will also post an updated key this afternoon with a ton more source keys in it.

New key posted again. I added three more source keys and changed the way it handled double answers to make it more accurate. I also took out the version identifier in the name that way, when people send the link to friends, I don't break it by changing the file name. The new version identifier is in the file itself. This is version 8.

ok someone explain this to me please cause im going crazy and as much as i tell myself this cant be too accurate (not saying im not grateful gamblor) but the popular answer doesnt mean its the right answer... there are a couple of question there its marking incorrect because the majority picked something else. I know for a fact that 2 questions are being marked incorrect and they were correct... specifically question 4 which was the force figure question... i am extremely confident it was choice A. which was 41.. and there is another question which my colleague feels strongly about and explained it to me and i agreed i was wrong, and again that question is being marked incorrect because the popular answer is not the one that "is" correct.

so statistically what conclusion can we draw from the logarithm?

im sorry i have nothing better to do, i would have normally been studying... lol still trying to get use to the fact that i actually have nothing to do, while im home...

 

I wanted to add this.... the majority of the people are not getting 90 - 100... they are getting 70 - 80
