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.

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...

Re: Science Olympiad at Penn Invitational 2019

Oh also! I was the proctor for Disease so if anyone has specific event feedback that would be great! If you want to message or email me privately, that is also OK, my email is on the front of the exam. I'm not sure how much detail I'm allowed to give away in terms or scores/distributions, but I may ...
