American Astronomical Society Teacher Resource Agent: The Quadrant (3097 words)
To check that the quadrant template is properly mounted on the stick, you should find someplace with a clear horizon and sight the stick toward the distant horizon; it should then read zero, since 0 degree is indeed the altitude of the horizon.
The quadrant is being used to measure a fairly small angle here: compute your average value, find the range, and compute the percentage error (100 times the standard deviation divided by the average).
Another possible sources of systematic error with the quadrant is fastening the protractor section to the straw at an angle or not hanging the string from the proper spot.
