Testing an Applicant
After many months of effort we have an agreed protocol to test a claim.
The claimant says he can predict the results of professional sports matches. There are many issues in testing such a claim but we think we have all of the important ones covered in our protocol.
Testing is underway. Stated simply the test will be consists of us sending him a match and him making a prediction of the winner. If he gets three wrong he has failed. If he gets 25 correct he has succeeded.
UPDATE: The test has been completed and the applicant failed.
There is a spreadsheet showing the current status at this link.
