Re: Astronomy C

Just wondering... do you guys save websites/files on your computer as HTML or PDF files? PDF, but thats only a last resort. Websites (often, not always) have lots of fluff in them, so I try to extract the info and turn it into notes rather than look at entire websites. This is pretty similar to wha...

Balancing Difficulty and Accessibility in Test Writing

Hi all, I'm writing tests (mainly for Astronomy) at a few tournaments. I've written tests for tournaments in the past, and I've always struggled with balancing difficulty with accessibility for less experienced teams, often leading to very lopsided score distributions.

Does an...
