Hello, Rojer!

In simple terms, a focus movie is the real thing. A calibration movie is used to test the accuracy of the participants. It's a true movie, but they already know whether or not there is a particle contained in the image.

Each volunteer will get a score based on how well they do with "calibration" movies that will be shown to them at random. The calibration movies are movies that we know ahead of time to contain or not contain a track. The volunteer won't know when they are viewing real data or a calibration frame.

This means that a person who simply click, click, clicks through the movies flagging them all as having tracks will end up with a low score and thus how they flag any given movie will have little effect on that movie's score.

I hope the above quote of Bryan Mendez from his post in the "FAQs" thread called "True discoverer" has helped to answer your question about the calibration movies. :)
