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?
