it was confusing in the sense that you didnt really know which people were the exposed/ unexposed, the test showed 2 groups of volunteers and said whether they did a certain task and whether they got asthma or whatever, but we were having trouble differentiating between the people who were/ weren't present on 9/11 so we didnt know how to complete the 2x2 table. to anyone else who did the WTC part of the DD test, did you have the same problem?

For those who took Division B at nationals, how do you feel about the time delay? Was it fair?

ehhh, b/c everyone had to deal with it, it wasn't really BAD, but i feel like i could have done a lot better on the test with 5 minutes of extra time

Honestly, I feel like we did a lot better because of the time delay, so it was kind of unfair in that respect.

We did worse...we don't split up the test, so we got through about 51 out of 60 questions. With 10 extra minutes, we would almost certainly have finished. A shorter time span wouldn't have been as bad if we each did 30 questions, but oh well.
