Thanks, Harm! All the test result pages are currently coming up as blank for me, though looking at the source code I can see there is something there... I'm using Chrome. Is that a problem?
Showing up blank in IE as well...
Try it now.
Works in the nightly build of Firefox.
Query: What is the significance between the D1, Q3, D9 etc. I see how they're arranged with the pop out, but why those names?
They are common statistical measures to quickly see where a particular score ends up when compared to others. They are shown in the Tooltip of the legends and are repeated at the bottom of all results pages and are explained in the Test Methodology Page.
It simply stands for:
TOP = TOP
D9 = Upper decile
Q3 = Upper quartile
MED = Median
Q1 = Lower quartile
D1 = Lower decile
From the Test Methodology Page:
In addition, the results are presented in an easier to read format. For each test the time result is now preceded by an indicator representing the relative position of an individual score in comparison to all other scores on that same test. When all results are ordered from best to worst, the top 10 percent, upper decile, are indicated by D9. The upper quartile are indicated by Q3 (between 10 and 25%), the results between the median and upper quartile (25 and 50%) are shown as Med, the results between the median and the lower quartile (50 and 75%) are shown as Q1 and finally all results below the lower quartile (75 to 100%) are shown as D1. This is all explained in the legends on the results page.
Sometimes it pays to read the info on a site.
This is a really helpful tool - after submitting the emails, how long does it take for the results to be displayed in the graphs?
Since both Bill and I do this as a service to all users, there is no compensation for our efforts and time, you have to take into consideration that we sometimes have other obligations, so may not react as swiftly as one could hope for. It can happen that both Bill and I have a few days off with our family and that these overlap, to give an example.
Our intention is to publish ASAP, but again, if we are out to clients or otherwise engaged, it can take several days. If you are in a hurry, not only mail the results to Bill, firstname.lastname@example.org, but also to me by PM. In that case include your mail address as well, so I can get in touch with you if there are any questions or to give feedback.
We both post results and have found a nice way to keep our records straight. Sometimes Bill may have more time to update results, sometimes I have more time.
I ran one and the results were up a week later... pretty good turnaround time, really!
