So, basically, PA States Eco test was to see how accurately and, more so, how quickly you can finish a short test.
It was 33 multiple choice questions. No short answer, no essay, just writing in letters.
The tiebreaker was time. My partner and I finished in 20 minutes and there were already 4 teams who had left. :o

We finished in 11, but probably got a question or two wrong, costing us a medal (Maybe more :? ). I don't like tests that are too easy like that.

Yeah, most of it was easy, but there were a few that were kind of tricky. I think we were the 3rd to leave (can't remember our time), and we must have gotten most of them right since we got 5th.

The test was so easy [IMO], you probably had to get all of them right in order to get a medal.

I think we finished in about 15-20. There only was 1 that we were somewhat unsure about, but now I think we got it right. The top medals must have come down to small time differences.

There were the 3 logistic growth curves at the top of the page, and it asked how many individuals of a certain population could co-exsist with a stable 135 of another population (135 was the second species' carrying capacity) in the same lab space. I said 900, because it appeared to be the carrying capacity of the first species, but the question didn't really make sense in its wording.
