Do people normally get States/Regionals tests back?

I was wondering how common it is to get tests back at regionals/states since we don’t. I’m also wondering when people get there tests back if they do (as in before or after awards, a week later, etc) Also, do any states or regionals release score distributions? If an grading error is found on a retu...

Re: Poorly Run Event Stories

whats even sadder is that waqua div b this year at nats reused the nats test from 2012.
Yikes. What’s the point of nats (or any competition) if they’re just going to reuse a test?

Why doesn’t scioly have a rule against copying past tests/ large portions of past tests?

Staying Motivated

Sometimes, it feels like people (including me) are pretty motivated up to Regionals, and then not as motivated up to States. There are no major academic things happening the month before/after States.

Is there any way to keep everyone motivated all the way up to States?

Re: Easiest event for you? Opinions! :3

Sounds, if I'm with my partner. My partner does the music theory and I do the physics (sounds has arguably the easiest calculations between the sounds, circuit, and thermo) and the build is basically an applied formula no matter what instrument you decide to build. Crime was pretty easy too, except ...

Re: Funny School Stories!

One kid asked a question about our finals and our math teacher responded with, "Do you want to be lynched?" Our best guess as to why is because we have been studying TKAM in English and someone had been talking about lynching while the math teacher was listening. She also once left another period fo...

Arpitr20 is in imminent danger. Suddenly, DatSciolyBoi notices that something is up and the pawn that is currently Arpitr20 takes one of my pawns, missing the obvious move, however.

Scioly things that keep me up at night: Sometimes I think about amazing partners who I took for granted because I thought they would be my partner again next year but turns out they won't and I feel sad :( I got 10th at states in disease, which is pretty sucky, but I'm an officer now, so I can do it...

Re: Keeping Competitors Accountable

We had weekly check-ins this year but they kind of stopped being effective when most of the officers stopped checking them/responding to them sometime around winter break - GGSO. If a check-in system is used there must be some way to make sure the people in charge of checking them are held accountab...

Re: Getting clapped on an event

B: Hovercraft never worked for me, at regionals 2017 it was our fault, at regionals 2018 it was supervisor's fault (wouldn't let us change batteries between runs) and states 2018 was our fault (soldering came off). C: Got beat by 2 places in Circuit Lab by our lower team at Regionals after beating t...

Re: Science Olympiad Events 2019-2020

Does anyone know if they are going to change the average pitch rule on Sounds of Music? With some apps (looking at you Google Sci Journal, which is unfortunately the easiest app for an ES to get), that rule honestly just does not work. Someone on the Sounds forum suggested using the mode of the 5 se...
