Hi all,

USAD just announced that they will be increasing the number of questions on some tests this season (at Nationals only).

QUOTE (USAD.org)
USAD will be implementing the following changes that will affect only the Round 4 National tests that are being prepared for the 2019 Nationals in Minnesota.
All testing times for the objective tests will remain 30 minutes. The objective tests will remain evenly weighted at 1000 points each.
  • Mathematics Test: Will increase from 35 questions to 45 questions total
  • Art, Science, and Economics: Will increase from 50 questions to 55 questions total
  • Social Science, Music, and Literature: NO Changes. 50 questions total
  • Super Quiz™ Relay: Will increase from 39 questions to 54 questions total (18 questions each for Honor, Scholastic, and Varsity)


See the official post here.

The official email from USAD mentioned that this is primarily in response to the high test scores in recent years.

Discuss.

Interesting: according to the announcements following the new USAD Board meeting, they say to "expect [an] increase in rigor as rounds progress following an analysis of testing."

I'm very curious to see what this means/how pronounced it is.
