As a Quiz Coach, I try to do the same when it is applicable. While I do rely on the Holy Spirit’s leading of my heart when it comes to interacting and mentoring the teens, I do use statistics at times to refine individual study and game-situation strategies. For example:
- Jaqueline is getting more than her share of According To questions during competition. Perhaps I should encourage her and provide resources to make those her specialty in the future.
- Blake and Aaron answer a lot of Context questions. I should put them on different teams so they don’t compete against each other for that question every game.
- It’s Question 16. What’s the probability that the last Memory Verse question will be asked next? Should I substitute my bench player now or wait?
- What are my quizzers’ current averages for this tournament? Who should I start the next game?

If you update the names of the Teams on each score sheet, it will also track Total Points and Points Per Game (PPG) for those teams represented in the file.
2. Percent Correct for each Question Type for the Tournament
3. Percent Correct for each Question Type by Quizzer
Checking the boxes next to several names updates that grouping's total at the bottom of the table.
