Key

  • Difficulty terms like “Regular” and vague qualifiers like “Fall-plus” or “Regular-minus” are non-standard and confusing and should be deprecated (read more). This site uses the following four-level scale:

    Difficulty Example (non-definitional)
    Easy ACF Fall 2017
    ●● Medium EFT 2017 old “Regular difficulty”?
    ●●◖ Terrapin 2016
    ●●● Regionals ACF Regionals 2018
    ●●●● Nationals ACF Nationals 2018 and above
  • Question marks (as in “NAQT Collegiate Novice??”) indicate degree of guesswork/uncertainty because no information/announcement has been posted yet.

  • EBOL is an inchoate idea for a “detailed stats league” for college quizbowl. The idea for EBOL is that participating sets will cooperate with Ophir and conform to a relatively consistent direction (such as distribution, difficulty, eligibility, rules, and format). At the end of the regular season, detailed stats from all tournaments will be compared and outstanding achievements will be recognized. Please email Ophir if you want to help organize EBOL.
