dkarkada and I ran Astronomy together at this weekend's UT Invitational. In case any of you are interested, here's the test
and the key
, which can also be found on his beautiful website
I am personally quite happy with how the scores turned out and I think that we were able to have a good mix of easy, medium, and difficult questions. Several teams scored extremely highly on the matching/MC sections (perfect scores or near perfect scores), while the FR section towards the end appeared to separate the teams pretty well. In terms of actual numbers:
Maximum possible score: 181
Standard Deviation: 32.3
Sample Size: 19
As always, if you notice any mistakes or have any questions about the test or key, please let us know! And if you are going to the MIT Invitational and doing Astronomy, we'll see you there!
Note (10/30/18): Name pointed out an error in the key for question 43. This has been fixed and the key online has been updated!
