Our internal model scores both quizzes the same way. However, the way we display those scores to you changes between the two tracks. On the entry-level tracks, we compare you only to other engineers at the same stage of their careers; on the non-entry-level tracks, we compare you to our entire network. More experienced engineers know more on average, so the comparison to our entire network typically ranks you lower than the comparison to engineers who have just finished a degree or a bootcamp.
For example, an 85th percentile score for the entry-level track corresponds to about a 50th percentile score for the entire network. If someone earned that score on the entry-level quiz, they’d see “Level 4” on their feedback, because they’re well above the average score among entry-level engineers. However, if someone earned that score on the non-entry-level quiz, they’d see a “Level 3” on their feedback, because their score is about average among all the engineers in the Triplebyte network.
