Re: Illinois 2014

It is not necessarily large school vs small school. I went to a middle school with 120 kids that was in aa. Also, a and aa are decided by a committee.

Re: Illinois 2014

It is where the more competitive teams are put into aa, while the less competitive ones are put in a. However, almost always, the top a team is in the top 20. Medals are awarded in a and aa, but it doesn't matter in overall ranking.

Re: Water Quality B/C

What do you think of the addition of coral reefs and the re-weighting of the exam? Also, what is meant by the part of rule 3 before 3a? Does it practically mean that marine and estuary systems are tested instead of freshwater?

Re: 9th Graders in Division B

I do not believe that Marie Murphy or SAA use 9th graders. MM has gotten 12th in 2019, 8th in 2016-2017, 6th in 2015, 3rd in 2013, 2nd in 2011-2012, and 5th in 2010. SAA got 14th in 2014 and 18th in 2018. DW is a feeder for Stevenson, and Marie Murphy is a feeder for New Trier. SAA is a PK-8 private...

Re: Last Invite Before a Regional

We usually go to 3 invites: one in December, January, and February before our regional in early March and State in mid-April. We never do back-to-back competitions of any sort. While the practice gained from a fourth invite is definitely valuable, I would not do this before regionals.

Re: Science Olympiad Events 2019-2020

Some supervisors try to have the test be broken up into impossibly long stations in order to make sure that the top few teams know the material cold.
