The document lists all the important dates: the date you will receive the contest problems, the alternative dates to host the contest, the last date to enter student scores, etc. The document also answers many of your questions, and it helps new team leaders get started. Please read it at your earliest convenience.
Definitely! That is why we have make-up dates. Simply make sure all of your participating students take the test on the same day.
The make-up dates can ONLY be used for an entire team, not individuals. If an individual misses the test for any reason, no make-up test should be scheduled.
A student can only choose the same grade level he/she is currently in or a higher level. For example, a second grade student can choose to participate in a third grade contest, but a third grade student cannot choose to participate in a second grade contest. However, one student can only participate in one level.
For special needs students, please follow the same procedures for other standardized tests and allow for any accommodations agreed upon within the students' plan.
No. The only exception is special needs students. See the question above.
No, we don't. If you would like to provide your students the contest in Spanish or another language, you must translate the tests on your own in advance.
You can, but you don't need to.
No, you cannot. Only students who are on the roster may participate in the contest.
No, you cannot. The roster will be locked after the roster deadline. Only typo corrections can be made by request.
A team's score is calculated by adding the top 6 scores of the team.
No, you don't need to pay for the medals. The registration fee covers the awards and the shipping.
