Last night Home Helptech provided electronic scoreboarding for a local Schools Table Quiz. With 48 teams of 4 kids, each answering 8 rounds of 10 questions, one of the major headaches for the organisers was scoring the quiz. For the purpose, I created a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel which allows data entry on one sheet (the “Input Sheet”) and automatically generates a league table of leaders on a “Leader Board”. I thought I’d post it here in case it’s of use to anyone else.

The Leader Board uses the pivot table functions in Excel to sort the teams in the order of highest points. Each time you update the input sheet you can subsequently right click on the Leader Board and click “Refresh” and the Leader Board is updated automatically. It’s ideal for displaying on a projector at the event for real time scoring updates. Or if you really want to look professional, you can try pasting it into Powerpoint.
