Re: Your Daily Random Comment

Could we all agree that it is misogynistic for a scholarship committee to ask your recommenders to grade your personal appearance? No lie, I just came across a scholarship for women in STEM that wants that. That's super weird. Trying to come up with a non-misogynistic reason they might do this... m...

Re: Disease Detectives B/C

Can someone please elaborate on the third point of part E in the rulebook, which says "Identify patterns, trends, and possible modes of transmission, sources, or risk factors". Does that basically mean "be able to identify what the cases have in common"? Or is there something more to it? My broader...

Re: Disease Detectives B/C

I've seen 2 triads: {person, place, and time} and {agent, host, environment}...on the test, if they ask for the epidemiological triad, which one do I put? On practice tests, different answer keys have different answers... Thanks! From our experiences, the agent/host/environment triad tends to be th...

Re: Anatomy & Physiology B/C

Has anyone needed to give treatments for any diseases on the invitational/regionals tests?
Yes. I would definitely know at least an overview of the treatments available for each of the diseases.

Re: Scioly Summer Study Session 2015

Yes, this has been an awesome year for SSSS! Not only did we get a record number of submissions, but the quality of the resources were the best to date. The notes were all concise and thorough, and the tests were better than most I have encountered at state tournaments. :mrgreen: That being said, I ...

Re: Scioly Summer Study Session 2015

mnstr can answer your question better Panda, but I believe it was discussed to do something fairly extensive. For example, making a few experimental design setups, and you then create the associated full write ups for each. I have not really heard of stations for an ExpD test, so maybe try to keep ...

Re: Scioly Summer Study Session 2015

For easier tests to write like ExpD or WIDI, would you want multiple tests made, or would you prefer only one? Umm multiple tests should be made for those, yeah. Maybe 2 WIDIs with really detailed pictures and grading process etc. I can't give you a definite number because it depends on the quality...
