Found much more precise Fresno county results - adding them to DDSIC now - http://www.fresnobee.com/2012/02/04/271042...y-students.html

EDIT: First 9k out of California this year! Timothy Anderson from University scores 9,083 points - big congratulations to him!

No they use a different system than the rest of the country. They have relay out of 60, however relay scores are still calculated as if they each had 5 questions, somehow. I don't really get how it works, maybe someone from Cali can explain it haha.

Yeah, it's 40 per relay question and 15 per written question. Fresno doesn't give awards for relay; it gives awards for SQ total, which is found by adding the top two Honors SQ scores, the top two Scholastic SQ scores, and top two Varsity SQ scores.

That sucks. And I thought the numerous errors in our power points were bad.

Yeah, super quiz has a 60% written/40% relay weight to them in Cali. 10 questions in the relay.

LA Times used to have around the clock coverage of acadec in LAUSD. But the quality of that paper has fallen as much as my alma mater's prowess in the super quiz. ocmhmm.jpg

That's how it is here too in Texas, except each student goes up individually instead of in groups and only has five questions worth 80 apiece. That was a cop out to me for Cali, "let's not let them go up by themselves, that's too much pressure!" That's the freaking point of relay!

I never understand why anyone does SQ relay a different way from nationals. We always did it the same way, except at our regionals, relay questions used to only count for 20% of the total (40 points each), and written questions were 80% (20 points each). That was changed to the normal system my senior year.

Pennsylvania used to do it in a way that I believe Nebraska uses?
All three division members go up at once, and answer the same ten questions, and after each question the score out of three is called out.
I actually liked that format better. It just seemed more competitive. We switched my senior year to the nationals format.

The competitive level is the same imo. And you don't really know who scored what, since they shout out the score of all three put together, so you don't know who got it.

This is the same way California does it.

That's exactly how we do it in Cali, JBroms.

Also...LAUSD is on live television. Eat it, Stanley Tree. You're just performing in front of your friends and family. Pfft...pressure.

I put in Kern County's scores, but I have zero computer programming experience, so I hope I didn't screw up the link. Bakersfield HS (BHS) earned 41,944.0 points, and Stockdale HS earned second with 40,680.8.
