AKRON REGIONAL TOURNAMENT (EASTERN)

  • Currently scheduled for Saturday, March 12th.
  • Right now, we expect to run "Satellite". We'll re-evaluate in January.
  • (What is "Satellite"? - https://www.soinc.org/play/tournaments)

    In Satellite format, students take their knowledge event tests and test their devices at school (or perhaps at home if necessary).

We're Running 46 Events

Event Supervisor Volunteers, Test Writers, Proctors

Event supervisors write the test, or lead the device testing. They are responsible for fair play and accurate scoring/results.

On Event Day:

  • Knowledge tests are administered online, supervisors or proctors open the event, observe and answer questions. The system can score many question types, with supervisors/proctors doing the final grading.
  • Build events will be evaluated via online video interaction. **(that's current plan - it might change)

Event Supervisors and Supervisors-in-Training Sign Up:

  • On event day, we need about 24 online volunteers to assist event supervisors or to proctor tests.
  • In the weeks prior, we need online help building online tests from Event Supervisor test documents.
