BQScore18 is an app recommended for 7″ or larger screens for the UPCI Bible Quizzing Program to help individuals keep score during a quiz. The scriptures included are for the 2018 quiz season covering selected verses from Galatians, Hebrews, and 2 Corinthians. This app is based on the Windows-platform BQTournament software, and a working knowledge of that software is highly recommended. Also, understanding of the rules and procedures of UPCI Bible Quizzing is assumed.
Scorekeeping with the app can handle everything that can happen in a quiz (timeouts, contests, fouls, overtime, etc). Calculations are automatic, eliminating virtually all calculation errors during score keeping. The difference between scores and the remaining points in the quiz are clearly displayed on the scoresheet. When a quizzer quizzes or errors out or are about to quiz or error out, his or her summary box at the bottom changes color to alert individuals to these events. Also, coaching hints are provided throughout the quiz, giving status updates and letting individuals know the quiz lock status (the moment at which a team has accrued enough points that the other team cannot overcome the point difference to win).
In addition to keeping score, this app also allows individuals to lookup verses, words, and phrases so that as a question is being read an individual can quickly display the quiz material relevant to that question.
When a quiz is over the winning team score is highlighted in green, highest scoring individual scores are highlighted in blue, and second highest individual scores are highlighted in red. Scoresheets are automatically saved for future reference, but may be permanently deleted if desired.
