The high school poll in 2014-2015

Post by Matt Weiner » Tue Jul 29, 2014 5:44 pm

George Berry has retired from operating the poll. I am looking for a volunteer to take over coordinating this.

Given the growth in high school quizbowl over the past several years, it may be an opportune time to reintroduce a fixed panel of voters rather than rely on open balloting; I will discuss this with whoever is selected. Post here or e-mail me if interested.

I like statistical things - I'd be willing to run the poll.

We should have a top 25 voters poll.

Will there be a mid-season poll this year?

There has been no mention so far, so I'd assume it's not happening.

The Quizbowl Resource Center has inaugurated a new poll which will be based on a "panel of experts" approach. 26 high school coaches & college directors of high school tournaments representing 14 regions of the United States, Canada, and quizbowl abroad have cast their initial nominations, which will be tabulated into a final ballot for voting next week. This poll will run six times per year. Look for results on the forum & the blog when available.

Will the list of those who make the poll be released before or after the poll? In the case of their names remaining undisclosed I understand the reasoning for this as well.

The list of voters will be released but specific ballots will not.

The poll is closing at 5 PM so I hope to have the results up tonight.

Will there be a mid-season preview as in previous years?
