As you can tell, I've not spent the holiday period updating the blog, and left it at rather an awkward point, as I started to spiral down on a run of bad results. My next post was half way through but I never managed to get it finished. There's no point now, so I'll just say that the bad news ended, more or less, with that week; I had a much improved followup that ensured my December statistics would be respectable.
I've done three quizzes so far in January, but I'll resume my weekly roundups by covering those in another post this weekend. This post is about my 2016 results.
I intended doing a large-scale analysis of my results, but uncertainty about how to go about doing that meant the data ended up in a largely useless format. I've thought long and hard about how to rectify this, and my 2017 analysis will be much improved. I might retrospectively fix up the 2016 data, to allow comparisons, but even the compilation was flawed, so such comparisons will be imperfect at best.
Still, here follows the major results, given here without comment. Apologies that the table doesn't copy with the gridlines, I don't seem to be able to fix that in Blogger. More to follow, later this weekend!
