Here's a thought for the next (?) test:
Stack and finish a wall larger than the test panel, then chain saw
out a segment that fits. This creates the challenge of getting it
into the frame, but you get a more "average" wall.

The problem is that you need a tight fit between the edges (top,
and sides) of the wall segment and your surround panels of known
conductivity. Otherwise, you get less insulative areas that screw
"average" conductivity results.

You can avoid all the chain sawing, squishing and car jacking and
stuffing by going load bearing.
