3 alternatives to clickers:

1) tablets (comparable price to clickers) or computers

2) Scantrons that can be read more easily (there are some iPad apps that scan bubble pages)

3) stick with Scantrons

anything else? I think option #1 is the most practical in the long term, besides #3

Also, two of my kids tied on speech, down to the same decimal point. That's not super likely, is it? I'm thinking that has to be an error.


Each judge gives each student up to 100 points, so there are 301 potential scores (0-300). Actually it might be less because I donít know if judges can give zeroes. Anyways, if the probablity of a student getting each score is equally likely, then the odds are 1 in 301. These odds increase if you factor in how similar the two studentsí performances are.

As for the decimal, each point a judge deducts is worth 3.3333 points off a studentís total. So, if two students have the same first three digits, thei decimal point is guaranteed to be the same too, since the smallest possible change you can make is 3.3333 points.

So, on the topic of those missing Econ scores... apparently what they're doing now is taking those students' State Econ scores and counting those instead. So this may end up changing a couple of individual or team rankings; we'll see (I know Bishop Hendricken, Cedar Rapids Jefferson, and Martinsville all had counters who were affected -- all of whom were present at Nationals last year and used the same clickers then too without incident). Definitely not a perfect solution, but it seems like the best thing they can do at this point -- and I'm very glad they're doing something!

This is a crazy solution, as the different tests are not apples to apples.
