This is fun to play with, but as a first pass, it would be nice to get an idea of the replies that were expected, especially if you get the question wrong.

It's a fair point. I'm still evaluating how good the AI is at coming up with answers -- interestingly, being able to score answers doesn't necessarily equate!

It is hard to know how it is scoring things. I got 1 out of 10 for writing "no idea". Fun to play with, though.

jacquilynne -- It's just scoring from 1 to 10. But I think you're saying 0 to 10 would make more sense, so that the score would be 0 for a totally wrong answer... which makes sense! I'll do that!

I did the one on Moby-Dick and I'm very curious as to what the "correct" answers might be. The questions are not exactly ones with fixed answers. There are whole books written on some of these things. (I wrote a good chunk of a dissertation on Moby-Dick and if you ask me "What is the significance of the whale" I could go on at length.

If you get exactly the passing score it fails you.
