Right when I thought life slowed down enough to let my SSSS stuff be done today it decided to speed up again. Thanks a lot life. Hopefully I'll have it done by next week!
This is fine, you got time. Get a hold of life, then scioly summer? :D

I'm working on writing a Disease test currently. Around how many questions should the test have to be considered "tournament length"?

I do not do disease, but I asked a bio person. The person said that in C it would normally have "two case studies, vocab stuff, maybe some epi curves", where case studies are normally short answer. Short answer usually implies less questions, since those take longer to answer/more time to grade. ~50 questions may do it, though B may use more vocab (again, not sure, just relaying here). Hope that helps!

Yes, reading emails, seeing stuff that does not work and reading forever's post helps us a lot :) (that was not directed at you...just the couple of people that did not send in PDF files among other issues that forever stated).

Okay, it seems that I finally might have time to write an Exp Des test. I was thinking of doing a stationed test, but I know not all states do that. In this case should I write one of each?

Can someone put down the current number of tests/notes/builds submitted?

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 it as "normal" full experiments? If the stations get across the same ideas, then I would suppose that's fine, unless they deviate highly from what the event is commonly about.

Total submissions I have down at: 19
Total users that have submitted I have at: 17

By event, the events with more than one submission in order from highest to lowest are: It's About Time, Invasives, Anat&Phys/Cell Bio/Disease (tie here).
Alphabetical order of events with just one submission so far: Air Traj, ChemLab, Crave the Wave, Electric Vehicle, Road Scholar

Keeping us busy, and I'm very happy/thankful for it! Note, the number of events we have currently does not mean we are more willing to accept a submission for "balance" or something. I do hope it gives you some ideas on events, though, where you see more practice/investigation could be available for everyone, including yourself (the test exchange helps to see this too). Not bad for one week :).

Just to be sure: you should email your test to summerscioly@scioly.org, not post it in the text exchange or as an attachment to a post.
