Academic Hallmarks

President or CEO Owner: Bill Brown
Location: Durango, CO
Status Open

Academic Hallmarks, sometimes known as Great Auk is a software publishing and question writing company based in Durango, Colorado. They supply awful questions to several invitational tournaments, including Knowledge Bowl events in several states where it is dominant quizbowl format. From 1983 until 2013 they organized the online Knowledge Master Open competition, and are currently developing some kind of software called the Knowledge Master Scholar program.

AH indicated that its other operations would be continuing despite the suspension of the KMO. However, the page on tournament questions has been de-linked from the front of their site, and tournament questions do not appear in the order form section. Questions referring to current events from at least as recently as 2012 have been seen in AH sets used at bad tournaments, but whether any truly new questions are being produced is difficult to discern. Some of its "pristine" questions have striking, near-verbatim similarities to older questions in its database.

AH has no affiliation with Avery Enterprises, but is oftentimes confused with it by novice QBWiki editors due to both being bad quizbowl providers who are based in Colorado and have two-word names beginning with "A."

Question quality

AH produces bottom-of-the-barrel questions in which no attempt at fairness, pyramidality, or avoiding trivia is made. Many questions for the high school sets rely on elementary-school-level knowledge of English grammar and deliberately appear to try to mislead players as to what is even being asked. Wild difficulty swings, unclear answer lines, and confusing syntax befuddle players and easily lead to bizarre match outcomes.

A uniquely bad quizbowl feature of AH sets are questions in the form of puns and riddles in which the player must provide the punchline in order to "answer." According to a February 2014 report from a person who moderated an AH set, questions also included the bizarre appearance in the packets of racial slurs and questions requiring players to agree with the AH writer's controversial political stances in order to "answer." Questions year-to-year are often either near-verbatim repeats or on the same pet topics of the author's personal interest, often involving things having to do with Colorado or nearby areas.

History

Former School district superintendent Bill Brown founded Academic Hallmarks in 1982 after working with Colorado Knowledge Bowl for many years.

Events using Auk questions

Academic Hallmarks operates in perhaps even more of an "alternate universe" to the good quizbowl scene than Questions Unlimited does, with the names of events on its website sometimes being the only evidence that the events, or any kind of quizbowl circuit in the state in which the event is listed as taking place, exist at all. Great Auk has considerable influence on circuits in Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Minnesota, and South Dakota, with pockets of Auk questions usage in Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, New Hampshire and several other states. Academic Hallmarks even has (or had) some international clients in Syria, Egypt, Russia, China, and Germany as they appear to market it to international schools.

The list of AH "pristine question users" at http://www.greatauk.com/pristineusers.html contains many tournaments which have in fact switched to NAQT or HSAPQ questions, including at least one that abandoned AH as supplier over eight years ago. Several other "tournaments" listed on that page have gone defunct or do not appear to have ever actually existed in the first place (no hits on Google or news archives). It is unclear if a number of other tournaments and leagues that use AH questions are using pristine questions or instead "custom" question sets of questions from previous years of AH, which are all still sold from AH and updated yearly.

The full calendar is no longer maintained or linked from the main website as of the 2013-2014 competition year. In 2012-2013, it listed the following events:
