All Tournament Team Rankings Explained
In the past, the only option for all tournament team consideration was to use actual PPG. With current technology, more choices are now available. UPCquiz will now provide all tournament team rankings based on Actual PPG, Equivalent Average, and Projected PPG. Each of these rankings measures quizzer strengths in different ways, and a summary of each metric is provided in the chart below.
* Percent Contribution has been replaced by Equivalent Average. They are in reality the same statistic. The only difference is that Equivalent Average is calculated by multiplying the Percent Contribution by a static number (either 350 or 270) to make the value an equivalent average similar in appearance to the other points per game averages.

What It Measures  What It Measures  What It Measures 
Actual Points Per Game (PPG) measures the average of the actual points earned by a quizzer in each quiz.  Equivalent Average (EA) uses the percentage of points earned by a quizzer prior to a quiz becoming locked as well as the total points possible in a quiz (270 for junior, 350 for senior) to find an equivalent average.  Projected PPG measures a quizzer's percent contribution by the lock and also factors in how many questions the quizzer answered correctly by the lock to get its calculated value.
