One thing that can't be under-rated is that many players are prepped by their agents to take this test.

So they take a few before taking this one.

Another minor difference is that if you don't like a question, you can skip it and come back.

So people getting 15-30 may do much better if they were an athlete taking this thing for real.

Also, I took it numerous times (until I had gotten all of the questions and gotten correct answers for them) and didn't get a 50, so I wonder if this thing isn't penalizing you for a wrong answer, regardless.

It is timed for a reason, when they are testing things like this it's not only that you get the questions right, it's that you get them right in a timely manner. I don't know exactly what formula is used to determine that, but I'd guess they have a baseline of how long it should take to figure out, sort of like those trivia things at Buffalo Wild Wings, gives you a set amount of time then starts counting down the point total.

I've got that but you've missed the point. Athletes are well prepared and random people taking this off the cuff are not.

As far as the formula: it's 1 point per question and the actual test is 50 questions (I took one while interviewing for jobs). This test gives 3.33333 points per question (rounded down).

Did anyone else get distracted and annoyed by the question asking about how many "points" were scored in the soccer game, you know given that soccer doesn't have points in any way, shape or form.

Also... what's with the questions that are small essays with that type of time limit...

Best post ever.

"You Scored 3

Sorry, all the football players in my database scored better than you did."


That was trying to take it on my phone (maybe that was Vince Young's problem the first time). I'll retake it when I get home, but I thought you guys might want to see that. I lol'd when I read it.

...which raises an interesting question: does the NFL administer this thing old school or new school? Can Vince Young be a normal guy who looks like a tard just because he can't type?
On the flip side of this, I type 115 words per minute with high accuracy, and I would almost certainly do worse on a pen and paper version of the test. I'm thinking that I would do much worse.

lol, 16 on first attempt to make me smarter than Julio Jones. 36 on 2nd pass to tie the better than Rodgers mark. First try was ridiculous because it started out with the words per page question and I didn't even finish the last half.
