High School Tournament of Champions
May 6, 2017
We are adding two tests this year.
World Literature will be open to anyone wishing to take the test. Next year we will have a qualifying test.
Personal Finance will be open to all students who placed at a Personal Finance event and for any other student wishing to take the test. The open to all will be for this year only. We will have a qualifying test next year.
HSTOC Scholar Test - One per grade level Freshman Scholar, Sophomore Scholar, Junior Scholar, Senior Scholar
To qualify to take the Scholar test a student must have qualified to take at least 3 tests at the HSTOC.
There will be one scholar test over multiple subjects. Each scholar test will include questions from grade level language arts, math, science, social studies as well as current events, fine arts and humanities, vocabulary, literature, and pop culture.
The OAAC High School Tournament of Champions is at OSU/OKC on Saturday, May 6. There are many other events occurring in the spring. If your students have a scheduling conflict with May 5, or have qualified to take two tests during the same hour Friday night testing is available. Date/test conflict testing begins at 4:00 on Friday afternoon, May 5.
Registration/packet pick-up opens at 3:00 on Friday and at 8:00 on Saturday. If there are no changes in your submitted enrollment, neither you or your students need to be at the testing site until 15-30 minutes before their first scheduled test. If you want to come by and pick up your packet then leave and go have breakfast, you may do so. If you would like to pick up your packet on Friday night so may do so.
We will have a Saturday conflict session at 9:00. If you are scheduled to take two tests at the same time on Saturday or if you have to be at a different event later in the day you may take one of them at 9:00.
Qualifying tournaments for the High School Tournament of Champions are held by the regional colleges and universities. If they become available, invitational tournaments will also serve as qualifying tournaments.
A student must place 1st, 2nd or 3rd at a regional scholastic or curriculum contest to qualify for the HSTOC.
Middle School or Junior High students placing in one of the high school categories at one of the high school tournaments may take the HSTOC test.
Each test will be 50 minutes in length. Students may leave the room when finished testing.
Tests will be graded and scores posted at the end of each hour.
Awards may be picked up after the results have been posted.
Trophies will be presented for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Questions will be weighted to avoid ties, however, if scores are still tied duplicate awards will be presented.
First, second and third place in each subject and for each grade level will receive a trophy. All ties will be awarded the same placing. All participants will receive a certificate of achievement.
The first set of results will post around 12:30. All students will be listed in ranking order.
