I think this can be really fun, but there are definitely some things that need to be done.

1. We need a portal of sorts that can ensure they get the tests done in 30 minutes and minimize the chance for cheating.
2. One of the awesome things about meets is getting medals- how are we going to do something equivalent?
3. We need a third-party person to administer all the scores- Nick that may actually be you next year, or Sebastian or someone like you guys.

I'm excited that a bunch of teams want to participate already, that's huge. This is legit a great idea, just not in the middle of the year for us.

1. Hmmm. I trust the coaches not to allow cheating. They'd get nothing out of it. Three of the four coaches who responded that they'd prefer physical tests to online ones, and the other had no preference.
2. Medals are cool, and we should obviously recognize all of the medalists, but I don't think we'd need physical medals, no?
3. I'm so down. biggrin.gif

You're right that four is still damn awesome. I'll contact them to see if they still want to do it, but I think next year we'll have a much bigger interest if we get on it early.

Could my kids do it at home or do they need to do it together?

Since these exams will be released to other coaches to take, Nick and Stephen asked me to keep them secure and not let students take home the tests. Sorry. :/

We've got eight schools now participating! Keep 'em coming! biggrin.gif

Uh, I don't understand. Is this only for people who ordered Decademy? (I canceled our order due to our "difficulties." We are taking tests with University this weekend (they ordered Decademy) so it would fit for both of us if it were open to all. What's the scoop?

Did it. Will see if University wants in. It's the only way we could do it because our intent is to swap scores with them so I can see how many thousands they're going to crush us by.

That's basically how I feel right now going into this-- I'm curious to see by how much Highland Park, Dulles (assuming they participate) and Alice (among other schools) will crush us. However, I'm definitely still going to be aiming for us to succeed no matter what teams we're up against biggrin.gif
