DemiDec Talk _ Academic Decathlon C&S _ Round 1 Competitions

Posted by: StanleyTree2.0 Nov 8 2018, 10:36 AM

This past weekend LAUSD had their Round 1 meet, which saw Granada Hills win at around 33k. Grant was 2nd at 30k, followed by Palisades Charter at 27k. Seems like it will be a pretty hard set of tests which is exciting. No news on ECR however. Scores can be found https://acadecscores.gilslotd.com/wiki/Round_1/2019

Itís worth noting that Franklinís reported scores are extremely wrong, with their actual score most likely being around 30k. Weíre still unsure as to what caused this massive discrepancy, but I imagine we wonít be able to figure it out until someone from LAUSD decides to fill us in.

Round 1 scrimmages started in Nebraska last Saturday. We took art, lit, and math, and on December 1 we will do econ, music, and science. Our scores were fine but not spectacular; my honors are very strong, scholastic fairly solid, and varsity needs some work. The math scores in particular were lower than I expected. On a related note, Nebraska will be using the full 35 question math test this year!

Whoo! At long last! biggrin.gif And don't worry, it's not just your team; the Math tests seem to be a lot harder this year! Good luck in December!

Some updates:

- Someone posted ECR's Round 1 scores on ADSIC. I don't know why they weren't at the LAUSD Round 1 competition, but they reportedly scored 36,745.7, their second-highest-ever and the third-highest of all time for anyone. So, as hard as these tests were seeming, their 6,662.9 H1 and 6,691.4 S1 have blown everyone out of the water.

- LA County scores are in! Not everyone's results are known, but you can check them out https://acadecscores.gilslotd.com/wiki/Round_1/2019 -- it's looking like West Torrance is just barely trailing South Pasadena in the mid-31k range, so that County competition should be super exciting to watch! West hasn't won since 2012, and South Pas hasn't lost since 2015! Beverly Hills is also back with a really strong team of over 30k, and Mark Keppel at 28.7k.

Wisconsin took Round 1 today and Massachusetts does on Saturday. I shall report back on the latter!

Looks like a pretty standard year here in Wisconsin.

Hamilton Invitation was yesterday and today:

1) Hamilton 43,464.7
2) Seton 37,221.8
3) Higley 36,716.3
4) BASIS Scottsdale 33.904.5
5) Casteel 33,852.6
6) Basha 33,744.6
7) BASIS Chandler 33,143.1
8) Williams Field 31,641.3

10) Campo Verde 29,889.0
11) Marcos De Niza 21,658.5
12) GCA 16,558.0

Surprisingly low performance from BASIS Chandler, due to our top Scholastic and Varsity being absent. Shows the need to provide the proper back-up in every division, I suppose.

Nothing like a 14 hour day and then they tell you they won't be giving out scores... mad.gif Drove 3 hours there, they wanted to use clickers...As competitors were taking the last test another coach told me that we wouldn't receive scores because they couldn't get the data off of the clickers. But they were celebrating how fast and awesome the clickers got data to the scoring team. My question is: Since the scoring team couldn't get data off the devices after the first test why would they do the same thing six more times?
So then we drove back 3 hours...Hmm. OH, and I got to pay for the experience ($12 per kid where I could have just done my local scrimmage for free and on scantron).

Was this the CA Capital Region Scrimmage because that happened there too? I was pretty angry that they wouldn't release the scores, with them giving the excuse that "Java had to update" or something similar. In the end, are they ever going to release the scores?

I've said this before, but I used to be a firm supporter of clickers before I actually helped set them up at Nationals and it took forever. I now refuse to believe that they're actually any easier than ScanTrons. I don't understand people's obsessions with them when these scoring fiascos keep happening again and again. Sure, when they work, they work great. But when they don't, it's a mess, and these messes don't seem to be all that rare.

Sorry this happened to y'all. :/

Yes, and as of 1:00 pm Monday we have not received scores...

Garland ISD did their district competition this last weekend, everything on scantron and answer sheet.

Had the scores ready 45 mins. after SQ, awards started promptly.
