Groger Ranks is a ranking of high school quiz bowl teams, founded in October 2018 by John John Groger, William Groger, and Arjun Nageswaran. Following Fred Morlan's retirement from running HSQBRank, Groger Ranks became the premier website ranking high school quizbowl teams.
Method
Groger Ranks adjusts the statistical performance of teams to produce a ranking, but unlike its spiritual predecessor HSQBRank it incorporates information about both powers and PPB. In summary, a given team's performance at a given tournament will be fed into a formula with adjustments which have been calibrated by the field's performance on that set, producing a numerical value - Steven Liu has produced a more detailed summary of their methodology for their website.^{[1]}
Adjustments
The adjustments used in this method are often used as an objective means of assessing a set's difficulty, in much the same way that Morlan's adjusted PPB (aPPB) was. As in the previous system, IS sets form the baseline against which other sets are compared, with one particular set chosen to represent regular difficulty for the year.
