Re: Science Olympiad at Penn Invitational 2020

In addition, I will be publicly releasing my test on 3/1 here so make sure to look out for that. I believe I will be the only one from SOUP to do this. Not the only one - Disease will also be publicly released (I'll post on test exchange) and sent to all teams who have messaged me after 3/1 as well...

Re: Duke University Invitationals 2020!

Re: Disease Detectives B/C

Unfortunately, a few days later, the restaura...

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

The classical music was also a hard no. Although I like classical and all, most people don't. I personally didn't enjoy the music that much because I don't like that type of classical music, so something with more core and more in the romantic era or something would be better. Or, just choose non-c...

Re: Science Olympiad at Penn Invitational 2019

It's how a lot of college exams are written One final point I would like to make is that not every team gets to attend nationals, but why should this mean that not every team gets to take a nationals-level test? The new wave of event supervisors has addressed this point and many of them write their...

Re: Science Olympiad at Penn Invitational 2019

My one comment would be that I don't see the point of a test that is "not possible to finish". It prevents teams from getting in competition practice on all aspects and topics of the event. This is again why I wish teams had been able to separate the tests. I have read so many times about hardworki...

Re: Science Olympiad at Penn Invitational 2019

For context, printing at Penn is 10 cents per page (for a double-sided piece of paper). Say the average exam length is 10 pages for a test an answer key combined, and you print 50 exams, that's ~$1,200. This doesn't include the fact that some things need to be printed in color (more expensive), or ...

Re: Science Olympiad at Penn Invitational 2019

Thoughts on events: Codebusters: ...understanding that SOUP does not have full control over printing copies of tests). I don't understand what you mean by they don't have full control over printing the tests? This issue of only have a set of tests for each time block seems to be a common thing with...
