We closed question 185 with a Brier Score of 0.77:
The Brier Score (Brier 1950) is a measurement of the accuracy of probabilistic predictions. As a distance metric, lower is the better. The Brier Score ranges from 0..2, and is the sum of the squared differences between the forecast and the outcome averaged over the number of forecasts. On a binary (Yes/No) question, simply guessing 50% all the time yields a “no courage” score of 0.5. We want to be firmly below 0.1.
