For events that have "nationals only" topics, how much of the test was focused on those topics?
Hmm. Actually, for Crave th Wave, there was actually absolutely nothing on the test about tsunamis or boundary effects on waves
And now to add on to the rest of my events:
Crave the Wave- It was a good test, almost a perfect example of what a nationals test should be like. It wasn't too long, but the difficulty of the questions made the test seem challenging, and overall I thought it was almost a perfect nationals test.
Experimental Design- The experiment was, for us at least, a bit too easy, but that may be because we did an easy experiment. It's really hard to say for exp design, because, as a test, you can't really screw it up.
Road Scholar- This was a typical Road Scholar test. It's what you should expect every year, really, for those doing Road Scholar. The test had the easy and hard questions, and for a test where many questions involve searching a map, it was long enough.
Picture This- The words weren't exceedingly hard, but my team and I were so unprepared that I really can't comment on the picture this competition
Meteorology- This one was a bit(actually, extremely) disappointing. The test was barely a third of the length of the test we were given last year, and was far too easy to be considered a nationals test. In fact, many of the questions we got on the test were the exact same, word for word, as those on the state test. If I could describe the nationals test in comparison to our AL state test, it was essentially the same, but just with less questions. And this is Alabama. Makes you wonder how the questions for some of these tests are found...
Overall though, I thought my events were run pretty well. It really stings that I couldn't get a medal in my final B division competition, but I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy this year's event.
